In following up on last month’s first look, Netflix returns with the official trailer for Barry. Barry focuses on the college years of Barack Obama, as played by Australian actor Devon Terrell.
A 20-year-old Barack Obama, known to his friends as Barry, took to New York City in the fall of 1981 to begin his junior year at Columbia University. Thrust into the middle of a racially-charged environment, a young Obama in turn found 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.
After initially debuting at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Barry will be landing on Netflix on December 16.
