 The Butler? (movie) I decided to buy it a couple weeks ago in celebration of Black History Month. What did you think about it? I am NOT a political person AT ALL...but given that this movie was based on facts I found it to be especially intreguing.

The thing I learned from this movie...is that kindness goes a LONG way and is contageous. I found myself loving Mr. Gaines even as a young man because no matter what life threw at him, he spoke quietly, with kindness and made a great impact on those around him. Sometimes we have to wear two faces to be able to survive in this world, but in the end our personal morals and beliefs will shine through.

BTW...this is NOT a post about politics of if you support our President or not, so please...no rude comments. All comments are welcome.

 Yes...it has Oprah and Lee Daniel's. I didn't care for Oprah's roll, but Lee Daniel's as the father Mr. Gaines was phenominal!

 Wasn't it well written? I held it for quite some time before I watched it because I'm just not that opinionated with political views. As I began watching...I was almost immediately drawn in by this mans kindness.

We bought it a couple of weeks ago and watched it I think last weekend. I can honestly say that I fell asleep during it so I will have to try and watch it again.

It was, and so much history!  I'm trying to remember what  President was in when they finally had equal pay, but I know it really wasn't that long ago!  The movie was well written and the acting was superb!  I have a hard time sitting through awhole movie(ocd.....I think)but never moved through this movie............excellent!  I give it 5 stars!
