Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (2020)

This movie is about the story of a black American women singer who wants to live on her own terms, in a Sensitive Era, where there is a diversion between races in the country, for her it’s about survival, pain, and joy. Obama Probably Chose this one intentionally, or he just got emotional considering that he is from the same race as her.

The Story Begins During World War 2, with two movie protagonists, (two women) struggling to fight the life and death situation, and searching for hope for a better tomorrow. Probably he likes this one because it shows the never give up spirit.

In Brazil, the poor man discovers a secret about the locals there, that they are hiding dangerous Secrets. Which is always a bad thing, and always turns out to be one man against the entire village. By recommending this movie, I can say that the message is to uncover the truth about something and fight to release it to the people, especially if it is gonna save lives.

Nomadland (2021)

It’s about an old woman who lost everything due to the recession. For short, it’s about the aftermath of a great recession’s aftermath. It’s convenient to say the least, especially if the year is where Corona hits, and everybody starts to panic. The movie may give some advice when you get hit by a recession.

Soul (2020)

It’s about a Middle school teacher who picked the wrong path in life, for himself. He wasn’t passionate about teaching, his true passion was Jazz. he was great at his work too but the more he lived as a teacher the more he realized that following your passion it means to have a soul. I think the message behind this movie is to do what you love in life, and never be locked in things that you hate doing, because it’s not worth living for.

Lovers Rock (2020)

It’s about an evening in West London, During the 1980s, A Performance that combined a violence Background with Romance and Music on Display. From the look at it, the film is about Music and romance. To be honest I didn’t watch this one, so I don’t know exactly what’s the purpose of it.

Collective (2019)

This one is pretty exciting to watch, it’s about journalists who are working to uncover healthcare crimes, and fraud. The story started after a big fire in Bucharest, Romania.
