The Butler is a multifaceted movie drama that chronicles the life of an African-American White House Butler. The movie gives an inside view of life in the White House from Presidents Eisenhower to Reagan. The film also deals with a father-son relationship of the butler and his oldest son. This is set with a backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement and how each president addressed the issues which lead to sweeping implementation of rights for African-American. The movie can be very intense when dealing with the weightier issues of the drama. This is tempered with humorous and heart warming scenes.

The star-studded cast under the direction of Lee Daniels brings the characters to life. Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey star as the butler and his wife. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terence Howard appear in supporting roles. Such luminaries as Jane Fonda and Alan Rickman help bring life to the presidents and first ladies. The movie is rated PG-13 because of language and intense adult situations.
