In Review: Lee Daniels-The Butler

Rare are true movie gems that find a way to filter their way into your soul, as they tug at the strings of your emotional apathy. When a movie can educate and capture the historical pulse of a time when subhuman behavior was the standard and barbaric tendencies were the tactical devise of choice; and bring that pulse to fruition on the big screen, you have what I consider to be an Oscar caliber film. Lee Daniels-The Butler, finds a way to enter both your mind and heart, as the storyline, coupled with the brilliant acting of Oscar Winning Actor Forest Whitaker and Oscar Nominated Actress Oprah Winfrey, delivers a powerful, riveting depiction of American history that is rarely addressed and often never approached. The plethora of information is worth the price of admission alone. The brilliant performances by the entire supporting cast that included stars such as Robin Williams, John Cusak, Cuba Gooding Jr. Lenny Kravitz and Terrence Howard, simply adds cream to the top. The cinematography masterfully captures the essence of each historical event, jettisoning the audience back in time as you relive some of the most provocative times in America’s long, illustrious existence. A must see that I highly recommend for all ages. Go see The Butler; now in theaters.
