The Two Faces in Lee Daniels’ The Butler

lee-daniels-the-butler

Lee Daniels’ The Butler arrives in cinemas in the US this weekend. It’s a while before it reaches South African shores, but the film has a close resonance that will be felt there, in scenes where Nelson Mandela’s name is chanted, and Apartheid is protested from afar. I will be posting links to the stories I’m doing when the film releases closer to the time, but for now, there were a few words said at a recent press conference for the film that I’d like to share.

The film springs off from the true life story of Eugene Allen, a butler who served at the White House through 8 presidencies. Danny Strong took the article written about Allen, by Wil Haygood in the Washington Post, and created a movie script that, through one man’s story, we are able to learn and feel more about the experience of a black family living through the Civil Rights movement.

The film’s themes of racism and wearing ‘two faces’ came up during the press conference, as the line is uttered during the movie as something Cecil, the butler played by Forest Whitaker, has to do when interacting with white people.

First Lee Daniels spoke about his experience, and then Oprah.

Then Cuba disagreed…

But Terrence Howard left us with these profound words…

THE BUTLER

The experience of the press conference was almost like being in an Oprah episode itself. With the legacy of racism still being felt today, the film – and further discussions around it – are so valuable.

  25. These road trip car games require just a little bit more knowledge than the alphabet and counting games. I think they’re even cool enough road trip games for tweens and teens to get involved! This is one of the best classic car games. Players simply pick a person and their fellow passengers have to guess who it is using only 20 questions. More ruthless players will opt for obscure personalities in order to prolong their turn but we recommend opting for well known figures to keep the game fresh. And to prevent Granny or Granddad losing interest and falling asleep. https://fireboyandwatergirlltql.bloggersdelight.dk/2021/05/27/hay-day-online-play-on-pc/ This game is, in essence, an online tactical shooter which pits one small team of players against another. These teams are split into attackers and defenders who have different objectives – defend/defuse the bomb, hold onto or rescue the hostage or simply eliminate the other team. Each “operator” in the game has a different play style with weapons and gadgets to help them complete their mission. What happens in the game will depend heavily on which characters are being played, so there’s plenty of variety and a lot of fun too.

    Любовь должна быть включена в порядок. Порядок является предпосылкой любви. Это действует и в природе: дерево развивается согласно внутреннему порядку. Его нельзя изменить. Оно может развиваться только в рамках этого порядка. То же самое касается любви и межличностных отношений: они могут получить свое развитие только в рамках порядка. Этот порядок задан.
    Второй порядок состоит в том, что между партнерами должен быть баланс между «давать» и «брать». Если один вынужден давать больше, чем другой, это разрушает отношения. Партнерству необходим этот баланс.
    Одной из составляющих хороших взаимоотношений является баланс брать-давать. Это о том, что мы вкладываем примерно столько сил, времени, ресурсов, сколько получаем взамен. Когда мы получаем отклик от мира, от людей, у нас волшебным образом появляются силы и желание давать больше. Мы чувствуем себя нужными, счастливыми, в гармонии с собой и миром.

    Но иногда этот баланс может нарушаться. Человек начинает или слишком много давать, или слишком много брать.

    Истощение накапливается незаметно, медленно, но оно неутомимо приводит к неким последствиям.

    Когда человек даёт больше, чем получает, то со временем в нём накапливается неудовлетворённость всем происходящим: “Я стараюсь, а меня не ценят”, “Я же всё делаю для всех, а чувствую себя таким несчастным”, “Они не благодарны”, “Я последнюю рубаху отдам, а мне никто не поможет” и т. д. И это ожидаемый эффект от такого неуважительного отношения к собственным ресурсам и потребностям.

    Баланс – основа жизни. Он чрезвычайно важен как в природе, как внутри человеческого организма, так и во взаимоотношениях. Желаю всем найти этот баланс и никогда не терять его.

    interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might bring your blog a little livelier.
