“A young Barack Obama (Devon Terrell), 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.”
Barack Obama may claimed he was black to get elected. But he’s actually a mixed race chap. I wish he would have been more vocal about it during his presidency because the future is mixed.
The film will be released on December 16, 2016 on Netflix.
