For three decades, Cecil Gaines served as a butler for eight U.S. presidents. By working so closely with and for these powerful men in the White House, he witnessed great, dramatic changes in American history, and in his "invisible way," he inspired them.
The Butler is based on a strong and true story that depicts the life of a butler who had a unique orchestral place to the great changes in the nation's history, from the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Watergate scandal, to the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy.
