Watch the Trailer for Netflix’s Obama Biopic, Barry

barry-netflix-e1479762447593Today, Netflix released the first official trailer for Barry, an upcoming biopic about President Barack Obama. The movie is set to be released on December 16th, just over a month before Obama leaves office, and it takes place during his junior year at Columbia University.

Devon Terrell stars as Obama and depicts the young future president struggling to fit in and navigate his environment. At one point, when a friend comments that because he is of mixed race he can “fit in anywhere,” he responds by saying, “I fit in nowhere.”

The film was directed by Vikram Gandhi and written by Adam Mansbach, who wrote Go the F*ck to Sleep. Both are Columbia University alumni.

Watch the trailer above, via Netflix.
