About time the civil rights movement was taught to the young people. Very well acted with big name actors who certainly didn't need the $

Great depiction of the times and era. Oprah Winfrey was wonderful in her role and was a stand out for me. The soundtrack is also quite enjoyable; we stayed to the end (like we always do) to read the credits! See it!

Interesting true story of a butler to many U.S. Presidents. Also very much a family story with 2 sons who had different ways of dealing with civil rights. Oprah gives an amazing performance as The Butler's Wife. Perhaps a Best Supporting Actress nod?

I enjoyed this movie. Forest Whitaker was incredible and heartbreaking. Was a wonderfully crafted movie; dark, but not so dark that it is difficult to watch. Definitely a must see. Potential Oscar winner.
