Netflix today released the first trailer for Barry, their new biopic about a college-aged Barack Obama played by Devon Terrell in his breakout role. The film follows Obama as he packs his bags and heads for the Big Apple to attend Columbia University.
Out December 16, as the Obamas’ exit from the White House draws ever closer (sad), the film will be a perfectly nostalgic watch while you’re home for the holidays on the couch with nothing to do.
Barry is directed by Vikram Gandhi and written by Adam Mansbach. It comes shortly after another Obama biopic, Southside With You, which was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, and chronicles the romance between the future First Couple of the United States.
Take a look at the trailer below.
