President Obama is about to leave office after eight years. The man is a legend and we’re all going to miss him, but perhaps this new Netflix original film can somewhat help fill the void.

The film stars newcomer Devon Terrell and portrays Barack Obama in his younger years when he moves to New York City to attend Columbia University.

It’s been described as the following: ‘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.’

Could this be the film that breaks Netflix's cycle of bad original movies?

The movie arrives at Netflix on 16th December.
