Michelle Obama Teams Up with Netflix for "Becoming" Documentary!


It looks like out Forever FLOTUS is giving us all something more wholesome to watch during the quarantine than Tiger King and Ozark.

Former (but forever) First Lady Michelle Obama has teamed up with Netflix to release a documentary surrounding her memoir "Becoming".

In a statement released on her social media account Mrs. Obama stated in part:

"I’m excited to let you know that on May 6, Netflix will release BECOMING, a documentary film directed by Nadia Hallgren that looks at my life and the experiences I had while touring following the release of my memoir.

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. 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.

I treasure the memories and that sense of connection now more than ever, as we struggle together to weather this pandemic, as we care for our loved ones, tend to our communities, and try to keep up with work and school while coping with huge amounts of loss, confusion, and uncertainty."

Mrs. Obama went on to say she hopes that those who view the documentary will "find joy and a bit of respite" in the project during these difficult times.

We don't know about you but, we'll definitely be adding this documentary to our "Watch List" just to add a little diversity. In the meantime, we'd like to know if you read her memoir "Becoming" and, if you did, what did you think of it? Let's chat about this in the comments below!
