The Butler.

So I just watched The Butler, a story loosely based on an article about Eugene Allen, butler at the White House through several presidencies.

It's shmaltzy in the way USAnian fiction tends to be, but very effective for that. If I'm going to cry over the bittersweet beauty of humanity, it's best if it's about social justice and civil rights after all. And if I'm going to be suckered in by unreality, let it be the unreality in which good triumps over evil.

I had a freakout moment happened when I noticed Ronald Reagan seemed kind of hot. That's because he's played by Alan Rickman, which I really don't think should have been allowed. Not fair, positively cruel in fact.
