Poster Art

Synopsis: After leaving the South as a young man and finding employment at an elite hotel in Washington, D.C., Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker) gets the opportunity of a lifetime when he is hired as a butler at the White House. Over the course of three decades, Cecil has a front-row seat to history and the inner workings of the Oval Office. However, his commitment to his ``First Family'' leads to tension at home, alienating his wife (Oprah Winfrey) and causing conflict with his anti-establishment son.
