Remember, It's "Lee Daniels' The Butler"

Yeah, Daniels has a way with actors. They respond to him. You can see it frame to frame.

I don't usually go for this kind of bio pic but (Lee Daniels' [Don't wanna get busted for copyright infringement]) The Butler has something special. This has awards bait written all over it and, stylistically, plot-wise, camera-wise, doesn't look special, but those performances... They rise above.

The poster is much the same. The lead character is literally draped in the American flag, yet it works, doesn't come off hokey. Nice graphic. Gets the job done.

I think people will respond. Gotta see this.
