A must see - The Final Year review by CW

Spoiler Alert

I wanted to see this for another opportunity to watch Barack Obama in action. Actually it was much more than that. It was a fascinating behind the scenes study of the phenomenal women and men who worked with him to achieve as much as he could. They were all idealistic and yet pragmatic. You see Samantha Power, Ben Rhodes, John Kerry and others. You watch all of them work tirelessly in their missions for honest government and to bring peace between nations and equality for all. Climate change was one of their most important issues. You see their hearts break when they watch with disbelief Trump elected as president. As we know, Trump has gone on to negate as much of Obama’s work as he has been able to. I learned that Laos was the most bombed nation on earth and people there are still being maimed and killed by mines. I doubt that the US ever had or will have again a man and administration as fine and noble as that of Obama’s.

Heart Breaking - The Final Year review by MF

Spoiler Alert

It's ultimately depressing to watch the efforts of the decent people in this film and realise that it's all being undone by that shallow puddle of a "president", Trump.

Obama wasn't perfect, but compared to this current administration …. jeez!!!!
