Lee Daniels' latest directorial effort, 2013's The Butler, tells the story of fictional White House butler Cecil Gaines, who experiences first-hand some of the 20th century's most tumultuous moments. With its star-studded ensemble cast, Lee Daniels' The Butler was a critical and commercial hit, grossing over $167 million worldwide. Daniels also produced the Academy Award-winning 2002 film Monster's Ball, starring Halle Berry, and directed 2009's Academy Award-nominated Precious (Based on the novel 'Push' by Sapphire).
