Lee Daniels' The Butler

Lee Daniels Stany Zjednoczone, 2013

Michael Harbour's rating of the film The Butler

Mostly heavy handed, maudlin, and superficial - but every once in a while things fall into place for some electrifyingly effective moments. Some of the stunt casting works; some doesn't. I enjoyed John Cusack, Alan Rickman, and Jane Fonda. Robin Williams as Eisenhower just didn't quite work.
