Mixing history with a moving family story this is a highly emotional movie, which charts the progress of the last 60-70 years alongside the life experience, triumphs and tragedies and the aging of the central characters.
Deeply moving, and utlimately uplifting, this is a great movie which I am sure I will watch again
a 'Butler' well served by this election.

I was a bit dubious about this film but it turned out to be very good. Forest Whitaker gives a fine performance as one of the White House butlers during the administrations of the 1950's and 1960s.
Highyl recommended...a thinking man's film with no car chases or gun battles.
Interesting to see the goings on at the White House through the eyes of ..The Butler. A good cameo performance from Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan...she does the walk of Nancy Reagan...so accurately.
Good value for money...and a compelling story.
