Lee Daniels' The Butler(2013)

I wasn't a particular fan of the camera work in the film. He loved the close ups a little too much and the camera was frantic during some scenes. There was also a lot going on in the film, a lot of moving pieces, and some didn't get enough attention to pay off. However, it was a very engrossing story and the ending is fantastic. Many of the plants in the movie paid off in the end. Forest Whittaker is fantastic and the makeup really looked fantastic. Oprah was also very good in the film. Also, a lot of great cameos for the presidents. Overall, it's a movie people should see.
