Barry Teaser Trailer

Meet Barry. Netflix has unveiled an impressive 30-second teaser trailer for the other young Barack Obama film out this year, this one titled Barry. The other one is titled Southside with You, and profiles Barack's very first date with Michelle in Chicago. Barry is about "Barry" Obama during his college years, with an afro and everything, as played by newcomer Devon Terrell in the film. The cast includes Anya Taylor-Joy, Ashley Judd, Jenna Elfman, Ellar Coltrane, Jason Mitchell and John Benjamin Hickey. This sells me on the film completely and it's only 30 seconds and barely has any shots of Obama's face, just him walking around campus and New York, and I love it. Simple, sleek, good vibes, nice work Netflix. Check it.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Vikram Gandhi's Barry, direct from Netflix's YouTube:

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. 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. Barry is directed by filmmaker Vikram Gandhi, of Kumaré previously. The screenplay is by Adam Mansbach. This just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. Netflix will release Barry streaming online starting December 16th this fall. Interested in watching this?
