Lee Daniel’s The Butler (Netflix Streaming):

As Cecil Gaines serves eight presidents during his tenure as a butler at the White House, the civil rights movement, Vietnam, and other major events affect this man’s life, family, and American society.

Heavy movie, always have liked Forest Whitaker, but an all star cast. Solid movie all-around, got the message across without being preachy. Yes, lots of fiction in here, glamorizations, Hollywood-ized, but still good. Lots of meat to chew on. A hair over 2 hours long, feels like a 3 hour movie, but in a good way. Definitely recommend.
