Lee Daniels’ (Precious) The Butler tells the story of a White House butler (Whitaker) who, after growing up on the cotton fields in the 1920s, went on to serve eight American presidents over three decades. The film traces the dramatic changes that swept American society during this time, from the civil rights movement to Vietnam and beyond, and how those changes affected this man’s life and family. A remarkable A-List cast help elevate the film to one that is sure to be in contention come award season.
