Film Review: ‘The Butler’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 16th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

THE BUTLER

Much like how ‘Forest Gump‘ was a feather in the wind, observing and interacting with major historic events through a few decades, Lee Daniels’ ‘The Butler’ uses a similar plot device as we see black man who worked in the cotton fields in the south and then ended up as a White House butler for seven U.S. presidents from Eisenhower through Reagan. With an all-star cast including Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and Cuba Gooding Jr. amongst many others, and the subject matter of this fantastic film, I expect high returns at the box office.

This journey with Cecil Gaines is a great yes sad look at our nation’s history during the civil rights movement. There are some highly entertaining moments that garner smiles and laughs, as well as some genuine tear-jerking situations. This is one of the best films of the year so far and I cannot wait to see it again.
