Tonight Emily and I went and saw the movie Lincoln. It was a good movie, but they could have left out some of the language. (Why does Hollywood think they have to put bad language in everything they produce anymore?)
I found the movie to be factual, based on what I have read about Lincoln in history books.
I would not take young children to the movie for two reasons--one being the language (not a lot, but more than it needed), and also because the movie shows scenes of the Civil War, which are rather graphic and would most likely be too disturbing.
