A young Barack Obama, 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. Check out the following trailer for the Netflix original, BARRY!

The trailer itself doesn't look like it brings anything new to the table, but I am really interested in the cast. Devon Terrell does a dead-on Obama impression, and I'm also excited to see the likes of Anya Taylor-Joy (THE WITCH) and Ellar Coltrane (BOYHOOD) in the mix. I have no doubt that Obama's real-life story is compelling, so we'll see if director Vikram Gandhi and Co. can translate that to a solid Netflix film.

BARRY hits Netflix on December 16, 2016.
