I haven’t seen the movie myself, but it is true that Lincoln was a big “fan” of Shakespeare, once even providing pro bono legal representation to a theatrical troupe facing religious opposition to performance in Illinois. He was also reported to have been brooding over Macbeth just a few days before his death (although to me this sounds just a little too neat to be true).
