Movie Review: Lee Daniels' The Butler

It helps that both roles are played so well. While a story of the civil rights movement is always a worthy topic, it is the acting inLee Daniels' The Butler, first and foremost, that makes it worth seeing and supporting. Forest Whitaker is so good he could have played this role in his sleep. He turns on every trick of subtlety and nuance to carve a real, evolving man, Kim Kardashian Jam what most of the audience ultimately is meant to see as a silent hero of civil rights, to play the lead Cecil Gaines. Whitaker has never been bad in any movie I can remember, and it is heartening to see him starring once again in a role he can sink his teeth into, especially as it requires a quiet grace that is in utter contrast to his famed role inThe Last King of Scotland. Fans of his should flock to see him. David Oyelowo, as Louis Gaines, has a fire inside the audience can connect with and understand. <br>Source:

Movie Review: Forest Whitaker a Witness to History in ‘The Butler’

Johnson), John Cusack (as Richard Nixon), and Alan Rickman (as Ronald Regan). None deliver particularly convincing performances (though Rickman's perma-wince of constipation is dead-on), but all serve as reminders that Hollywood history is just as white-male dominated as U.S. history. Daniels' explanation of their casting serves to remind that it still is. To its credit, The Butler doesn't whine or preach much. It's happy to settle for a broad rendering of the way things were and are. White supremacy keeps Cecil underpaid compared to his white colleagues, but his unjustly modest salary supports a lower middle-class life that allows his son Louis (David Oyelowo) to branch off, protest, and eventually pursue a political career. "Everything you are and everything you have is cause of that butler," says Cecil's wife Gloria (Winfrey) to their son during a showdown. <br>Source:

Movie poster artist Drew Struzan gets the doc treatment

While we see the civil rights movement through the lens of the White House, the brutality and humanity of it all is brought to life through Cecils son, Louis, played by David Oyelowo, who is always a treat to watch. Louis becomes a Freedom Rider and then a Black Panther. His choices do not sit well with Cecil, who has worked hard to give his son a decent life and the ability to go to college. Hes dumbfounded when Louis decides to attend a university down South, at the time a hotbed of racist activity. Daniels renders moments of the civil rights movement in ways we havent seen before. Youre sitting at a lunch counter with black students while white patrons shower them with racial epithets and food. <br>Source:
