Back in 2018, Michelle Obama released her memoir titled ‘Becoming‘ and it was a massive hit. It sold more copies than any other book published in the United States in 2018, and it broke that record in just 15 days.
Now, two years later, a ‘Becoming’ documentary is set to hit Netflix.
The film, directed by Nadia Hallgren (She’s the Ticket), promises an intimate look into every facet of Obama’s life, from her beginnings to the present. It also promises more-than-wholesome footage of Obama inspiring young black women and answering questions about racism with honesty.
The documentary will provide more behind-the-scenes footage, following Obama on the 34-city tour she went on to promote the book.
This film, which hits Netflix on May 6, is part of the deal Barack and Michelle reached with Netflix back in 2018. Their production company signed an exclusive deal with the streaming giant.
One of their recent projects, Crip Camp, premiered on the streaming service back in January. It currently has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
