LEE DANIELS' THE BUTLER is set against the tumultuous political backdrop of the 20th century America. Academy Award nominated director Lee Daniels' (PRECIOUS) epic drama tells the story of fictional White House butler Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), who serves during seven presidential administrations between 1957 and 1987. 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.
