Lee Daniels is no stranger to incredible filmmaking. Having produced 2001’s Monster’s Ball, which won Halle Berry an Oscar, and produced and directed the acclaimed 2009 hit, Precious, which did the same for Mo’Nique (and earned him a nod for Best Director), he is clearly an artist who knows his way around a good story.
This past year, Mr. Daniels took on his most compelling tale to date, in Lee Daniels’ The Butler. Inspired by the amazing true story of Cecil Gaines, the devoted husband, father and White House butler who served seven U.S. Presidents in total. The amazing film features Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker as Gaines, a man who witnessed firsthand some of the most tumultuous and defining moments of the 20th century, and also features an amazing supporting cast that includes: John Cusack, Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Terrence Howard, Lenny Kravitz, James Marsden, David Oyelowo, Alan Rickman, Liev Schreiber, Robin Williams, and Danny Strong.
Lee Daniels’ The Butler is available on Blu-ray combo pack starting Jan. 14. Don’t miss out on your chance to experience this amazing true story.
