On "Lee Daniels' The Butler"


From The Dispatch:
It mostly feels like a lot of stunt casting, which is part of what makes "The Butler" so hard to take seriously, but it's just so earnest, so completely invested in its story, that it's hard not to get caught up in it. This is a film with a huge heart, and while it may seem a bit like "Forrest Gump," Daniels and his sprawling cast throw themselves into it with such conviction that it works in spite of itself.
