The film runs just under one hour and thirty minutes while highlighting Michelle Obama’s life.
Becoming opens up with a glimpse into Michelle’s personal life outside of being Mrs. Obama and begins with the relationship with her brother Craig.
Mrs. Obama also speaks about how her life was shaped by “white flight” during the ’70s.
The film then turns its lens beyond Michelle as the main focus and offers us a look at young people that she wants to touch with her life’s message.
Michelle lets us into her raw and painful hurt of being attacked in the media when the Obama family was placed on the national stage during the ’08 campaign, how she felt the need to be perfect because they were the first black family in the White House.
