Netflix's 'Barry,' About Young Barack Obama, Gets First Trailer!

Netflix has released the first full trailer for the upcoming movie Barry, which gives a look at the life of a young Barack Obama years before he became president.

Newcomer Devon Terrell stars in the film as the title character alongside Anya Taylor-Joy, who plays an amalgamation of his three, white college girlfriends.

The movie will start streaming on December 16!

Here is the synopsis: A young Barack Obama, known to his friends as “Barry,” arrives in New York City in the fall of 1981 to begin his junior year at Columbia University. In a crime-ridden and racially charged environment, Barry finds himself pulled between various social spheres and struggles to maintain a series of increasingly strained relationships with his Kansas-born mother, his estranged Kenyan father, and his classmates. Barry is the story of a young man grappling with those same issues that his country, and arguably the world, are still coming to terms with 35 years later.

    This is sure to go straight to DVD. Sad for children and college students forced to watch as a documentary and historical face.

    Something tells me they will skip completely over the fact that he spent 4 years as a child in an Indonesia madrassa and that he can speak fluent Arabic with an accent. Also absent will be the fact that he, books, schools, and even his wife formerly identified whoever this guy is as a native of Kenya. Silly me for hoping, but I would love for this film to explain why Mr. Soetoro used/uses an alias and if he, in fact, changed his name.

    The story takes place in 1981 when he was living in the States.

    You are a moron. He changed his name? You mean he took his biological father’s name, which is the name he was born with.

    Not a big fan of Obama, probably because I’m not American and don’t really care for him. Don’t really care for politics in general but this film looks really good. I’m more interested in their take of 1981 and him experiencing being biracial. It looks like he’s really struggling with where he belongs because of it. Never heard of this actor before, so I look forward to seeing a new face.

  • Legendary Trolly

    This movie portraits him as confident and cool. When to me, Obama is awkward and kind of slow
