Billed as a gripping documentary about the life of Barack Obama and what makes him tick, the movie “2016: Obama’s America” is proving to be a hot topic as summer comes to a close.
It came in number 13 at the box office over last weekend, according to Christian Toto on Breitbart.com.
The movie goes to the heart of the world’s most powerful office to show how one man’s past may well redefine America’s future. It attempts to answer the question about what a second term with Barack Obama will hold for America, and it will strike fear in the hearts of many.
Producer Gerald Molen is most notably known for his work on the Academy Award-winning “Schindler’s List” and other popular films, including “Jurassic Park,” “Twister,” and “Rain Man.”
“2016: Obama’s America” is based on the works of Dinesh D’Souza, whose patriotism leads him to research many of the unknown factors in Obama’s background.
He explains that, while people reached out for a leader in 2008, Americans wanted someone who would unite, lift up the economy, and get us out of war. That’s when America’s idealism took over and they placed their hope in a new kind of president, Barack Obama, whose exotic name and intriguing background captured their imagination and their votes. But there was a lot that people didn’t know about Obama -- and there’s a lot they still don’t know. As one of the promotions for this movie says, “Love him or hate him. You do not know Obama.”
D’Souza “races against time” to find answers to Obama’s past and to show where America will be in 2016. He discovers, and shares with the audience, how “‘Hope and Change’ became radically misunderstood ... .”
In this movie, you will see an interview with Obama’s impoverished half-brother George in a hut in Kenya. While not much has been said in the American press about that relationship, D’Souza went so far as to donate money to help with the Obama brother’s medical expenses. Like the film itself, this story has largely been ignored by the mainstream media.
This hour-and-a-half documentary is rated PG.
