I thought that it was a phenomenal movie. Great story line and well acted. My emotions ran from angry, sad, happy, crying. The entire audience clapped when it was over. It's a must see. I would see it again. Well done Mr. Daniels

The Butler

By sherry suttles

Took me back! to the days of presidencies and civil rights struggle in a beautiful, sentimental, warm and familiar, yet revealing way. All my favorite actors and actresses did bang up jobs--Forest Whittaker, Oprah Winfrey, John Cusack,Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Terrence Howard, Lenny Kravitz, and more. Way better than The HELP which I refused to see on principle. This depicts us in subservient roles with dignity and quiet revolutionary spirit that won action without jail sentence and bloodshed in that instance (Gaines getting the salaries and benefits increased for blacks in White House).

propaganda

I really wanted to like this movie... it is left wing propaganda. Sadly judging from the previews shown beforehand; there is a lot more on the way. Must be gearing up for mid-terms. Wake up America!! How can a predominately racist country elect a black man twice. The divisive nature of this administration is creating racism.

Lee Daniels 'The Butler

Everyone should see this movie. Children should see this in their history classes and the 30-80 crowd needs this movie to put the Civil Rights Movement in this country into perspective. Whittaker and Winfrey should get Oscars and others could get best supporting Oscars. Screen writing, costuming, editing, make-up etc. It's the total package. The movie was sad, funny , poignant, and the truth seen through the eyes of a black man.
