Netflix has acquired worldwide rights to Barry, a film about a formative year in the life of a young Barack Obama, following its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this month.According to Deadline, the streaming service beat out several other distributors to land the rights to the critically-acclaimed film from director Vikram Gandhi, which premiered September 10 in Toronto. Netflix was said to have spent $4.5 million to acquire the film, though the final number was not confirmed.Barry tells the story of one year in the life of the future president, as he attends Columbia University in New York City in 1981 and is faced with “questions about race, culture and identity.”Newcomer Devon Terrell plays the young Obama, with Straight Outta Compton breakout star Jason Mitchell, Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood), Ashley Judd and Jenna Elfman rounding out the cast.Moe>http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2016/09/18/netflix-acquires-young-barack-obama-movie-barry/A black French poodle will be playing Michellehttp://i.imgur.com/5v7GDqI.jpg

Gosh, I can't wait for it.

I wonder who'll be playing his 'composite girlfriends'. -The girls he combined into one girlfriend for the sake literary-expediency, or whatever, in his biography.

I can just just see him, eyes full of hope, gazing up at an NY-skyscraper... " They didn't build that. I did. I'll make them all believe, somehow... "

Lordy! Lordy! ...

They don't make barf bags large enough in order to get me to watch!

Plus, that poodle is far too friendly looking to play Michelle! :biggrin-new:
