Former President Barack Obama shared his favorite films of 2019 (and a few television shows) on social media Sunday. Among the picks from the list is ‘American Factory,’ the first movie Obama and former First Lady, Michelle released through their Higher Ground production company. The project is well received with award accolades, and recognition on the best documentary Oscars shortlist.
Other films liked by Obama include Netflix’s The Irishman, Marriage Story, and Atlantics. The streaming network is also home to Higher Ground. Documentaries mentioned include Amazing Grace and Apollo 11, Booksmart, The Farewell, Ford v Ferrari, Just Mercy, The Last Black Man in San Francisco, Little Women, and Parasite.
The Netflix limited series Unbelievable, HBO’s Watchmen, and season two of Amazon’s Fleabag are the three television shows acknowledged by Obama. See the complete list via his tweet below.
