Devon Terrell


The second of 2 (that we know of) young Barack Obama-related films making a splash this year, is set to world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall, it was announced today by the festival.


Titled simply “Barry,” and directed by Vikram Gandhi, the film is set in New York City, in 1981, and is inspired by true events, telling a story of a young Barack Obama as he tries to find his way as a college student in a new city, while faced with questions about race, culture and identity during what would be a crucial year in the future President’s life.


Devon Terrell (who won the lead role in Steve McQueen’s now-defunct HBO project “Codes of Conduct”) stars in the film as Obama, with Anya Taylor-Joy, Jason Mitchell, Ellar Coltrane and Ashley Judd rounding out the cast.
