Forest Whitaker is quietly powerful as a White House servant who lived through the long battle for civil rights.
We were lucky enough to watch a screening of this movie several months ago before it reached it’s European release.
It is a slow building movie that will fundamentally shift how you think about many things including our own judgements and on how we can each make a difference.
There is clearly an agenda or two running through the movie though that can hardly be surprising.
Some of the actors are too well known in our view.. and an unknown cast might have made for a bigger impact but the overall effect is a movie that we think will go down well.. If it will last .. is to be seen.
