Add former First Lady Michelle Obama to your list of people to watch on the screen. A documentary chronicling her book tour for her best-selling memoir, Becoming, is heading to Netflix.
On Monday, Netflix gave us a glimpse inside our #ForeverFLOTUS’ upcoming documentary. Based on her history-making and best-selling memoir, the film followed the 56-year-old mother of two and Harvard-educated lawyer as she traveled to 34 cities on tour for her book, Deadline reported.
In an exclusive deal with the streaming service, Obama’s production company, Higher Ground, produced the film.
“Those months I spent traveling — meeting and connecting with people in cities across the globe — drove home the idea that what we share in common is deep and real and can’t be messed with,” Obama said in the sneak peek trailer.
“In groups large and small, young and old, unique, and united, we came together and shared stories, filling those spaces with our joys, worries, and dreams. We processed the past and imagined a better future. In talking about the idea of becoming, many of us dared to say our hopes out loud.”
Check out the first look:
If you missed Obama’s book tour, — particularly the Brooklyn, New York tour when she sported the gold sparkly thigh-high Balenciaga boots — this documentary should be a close experience to that moment.
Becoming, directed by Nadia Hallgren, debuts on Netflix on May 6.
