The Butler is set against the tumultuous political backdrop of 20th century America. Academy Award nominated director Lee Daniels' (Precious) epic drama tells the story of White House butler Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), who serves during seven presidential administrations between 1957 and 1986. The film is inspired by Wil Haygood's 2008 Washington Post article "A Butler Well Served by This Election" which chronicled the real life of former White House butler Eugene Allen. Through the eyes and emotions of the Gaines family, Daniels' film follows the changing tides of American politics and race relations; from the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, to the Freedom Riders and Black Panther movements, to the war in Vietnam and the Watergate scandal, Cecil experiences the effects of these events as both an insider and a family man.
