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.

A bit rough at the beginning

I was very much looking forward to this movie, especially since it has a great cast. However, the beginning is a little bit to graphic, why not just tell what happened instead of showing it? There are already so many horror movies and computer games out there, showing graphic violence. I do like the campaign though, which has put this movie on the map.

Lee Daniel's The Butler

What a wonderful movie! Oprah and Forest Whitacker gave Oscar worthy performances. Enjoyed all the actors portrayals of historic figures of the twentieth century. This movie made me laugh and cry several times. I grew up during these decades and it brought back many memories and emotions and puts everything into perspective. So glad for these Freedom Fighters and for the insider's vantage point and price he paid for all his family's sufferings while he truly served his country. The best film by far I've seen in all my 60 years! Thank you for making it. It needed to be told for the younger generations.

This movie was absolutely amazing! It is mainly for those with a higher interest in history and our presidents. It is a very descriptive movie and gives a huge real life example of the way of thought amongst black men and women. Along with white men and women. Those that wish the blacks to be oppressed as apposed to those that do not. And those that are in mutual standings with both sides.
