"The Butler" is one of the most hotly anticipated movies of the year. The film is inspired by the real-life story of Eugene Allen, who served as the butler to eight U.S. presidents. Anderson sat down with the film's stars Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker. "The Butler" is opening in theaters in the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the killing of Trayvon Martin. According to Oprah, this movie "brings context to the discussion" started when Martin’s death first made headlines.
