Follow a young President Obama in the teaser for Netflix’s ‘Barry’


From his “Barackatology” picks for college basketball to his fantastic “Obama out” moment at his final White House Correspondents’ Dinner, we think that President Barack Obama is a pretty cool guy. With his time as President coming to an end, there’s a lot of focus on looking back at his time in the White House and his life in general.

The movie focuses on Obama’s (played by Devon Terrell) time at Columbia University in New York, and looks to explore how he became the man that entered the White House in 2008. We see Obama walking through various locales, including the university, New York City, and a couple of nightclubs. When we finally see Terrell’s face, it’s with a shirt and tie on, signaling the transformation into the future President.

Barry is directed by Vikram Gandhi and also features Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) alongside Terrell. The film arrives on Netflix on December 16.
