Todays movies are the Human Stain and Lee Daniel‘s The Butler.
I chose The Human Stain in honor of Wenthworth Miller who co stars in the movie and also because its a good movie. When a disgraced former college professor has a romance with a mysterious younger woman haunted by her dark twisted past, he is forced to confront a shocking secret about his own life that he has kept secret for 50 years. If you like a drama with a little twist and suspense you will like this movie.
So i figured i couldn’t leave out new movies that i want to see. Recently Lee Daniel’s The Butler is a movie about Cecil Gaines who served eight presidents during his tenure as a butler at the White House, the civil rights movement, Vietnam, and other major events affect this man’s life, family, and American society.From the previews that i have seen and Mariah Carey has a small part what more do i need and you need. Alot of people have mixed emotions about movies such as this or they feel that “white Hollywood” drops the ball most time in trying to tell our struggles. I have seen a few of Lee Daniels movies and I think he tries to tell the stories that are not being told. While all are not a hit I think he does a good job telling the stories I commend that and cant wait to check it out and you should too! P.S. He directed Precious staring Gabourey Sibode and Monique also co starring yours truly Mariah Carey. Maybe I’m a little bias.
