Lee Daniels' The Butler

“The Butler,” directed by Lee Daniels (“Precious”), and starring Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker as Eugene Allen…a man who served eight presidents during his 30-year employment as a White House butler…is sure to be nominated for Best Picture.

To date this is by far the best film of 2013…not only because of outstanding performances by Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey (among others), but because of it’s power to “move” people. It’s rare when a movie can make an audience laugh, cry, and even applaud.
Getting past TV icon Oprah took a few minutes, but she gives a performance worthy of an Oscar nomination.

Rated PG-13
2 hr. 6 min.
