Hardball | February 08, 2013
>>> let me finish tonight with this. america in its best roots for the underdog. it's the thing we like about watching on oscar night. we love it when the little movie wins the big prize. i know that "lincoln" is the big movie of last year. directed by the great steven spielburg who gave us jaws and indiana jones and saving private ryan . i love this movie. it's about real people . people from down the street. people with problems. the widow of a policeman shot in line of duty, a young man suffering from a challenging illness, a mother who refuses to be down beat. it's about a family held together by -- well, being a family. and i'm for this. look at my country. people that refuse to give up. families that refuse to give up on each other. if you've given up on going to the movies and are not going anymore, go to this one. what american movies can be. that they can be truly great. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now.
