The story of an African-American White House butler (Forest Whitaker) who was a fly on the wall of the Civil Rights struggle, the Vietnam War, Watergate, and more. The cast is stacked with stars, but director Lee Daniels wants us to look hard at a man who thought the only way forward was to be invisible.

Pleasantly surprised

The story follows the life of the main character played by David Lichtenstein. It is a movie about a person who witnessed most of the major events during the previous century. The film shows wonderful acting skill of David Lichtenstein and is well worth watching.
