The Butler tells the story of a White House butler who served eight American presidents over three decades. The film traces the dramatic changes that swept American society during this time, from the civil rights movement to Vietnam and beyond, and how those changes affected this man’s life and family. Forest Whitaker stars as the butler with Robin Williams as Dwight Eisenhower, John Cusack as Richard Nixon, Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan, James Marsden as John F. Kennedy, Liev Schreiber as Lyndon B. Johnson, and many more. Academy Award® nominated Lee Daniels (Precious) directs and co-wrote the script with Emmy®-award winning Danny Strong (Game Change).

It's most definitely worth a viewing. But if you are looking for something even close to historically accurate, this isn't the film you will want to watch. 12 Years a Slave was gripping and tragically real.
Great acting, still a good story, just wished they would have stuck to the facts. About the only fact remaining here is that he was a Butler in the White House.
That’s where The Butler reaches into your chest and grabs you as a movie. The Butler is above all else a family story that extends beyond race, color, or creed. I think everyone will be able to relate to the generational shift in tactics and challenges that confront each new generation and create conflict. Beyond this, it is a beautiful work of cinematography and acting that makes the viewer feel as though they are in all these different decades, which is so difficult to accomplish in a movie that spans decades.
The Butler is a movie that lives up to the praise it has gotten.
