Becoming, Netflix.


Becoming was produced by Obamas’ own production company, Higher Ground. It follows Michelle Obama on her book tour, and although she remains as cool and charismatic as ever, it feels like she’s still being cautious – understandably after a decade of being under the constant eye of the press with the baying opposition waiting for her to make a fall. It’s informative and interesting: she talks about marriage counseling, postnatal depression, and sibling favouritism. There are emotional moments when she meets fans – and it becomes clear that she is a strong source of inspiration and that the Obamas still brings hope to those who thought there was none. But Michelle Obama never made a misstep as Flotus then and she doesn’t do that here. There she is calmly and safely on the higher ground.
