Great historical movie. Forest deserves Oscar. Acting was wonderful, especially Oprah. Great editing and photographs and videos - true videos from the past. Definitely GOOOO. You will learn a lot.

Worth seeing

I liked the movie. Words that come to mind are: compelling, powerful and emotional docudrama that I could relate to. I have not always been a Forest Whitaker fan, but he was outstanding in this movie.

Maybe if you're in your 60's and have lived through most of it, It held no surprisesl All presidents showed absolutely no resemblance to actors and very few special tidbits about the presidents.

Lee Daniels the Butler

The movie was fantastic. The storyline has substance. It shows how DNA does not determine everything in your life. Each member of the family has his or her own thoughts and value system. It shows that in spite of our differences love is always the one constant and with it we can value each other.

As an African American Studies teacher, I absolutely loved this movie. From beginning to end, it was entertaining.
