Many on Twitter shared how Obama has taste when it comes to movies. “Obama has an exquisite taste. I love watching his picks that I missed throughout the year.” Another user commented on the tweet with a movie suggestion: “May I recommend Belfast? A beautiful movie with so much humuor + heartbreak alike. One of Kenneth Branagh’s best films. Jude Hill is a true wonder + gives me hope for the next generation of young actors. And @caitrionambalfe is absolutely brilliant,” a netizen commented.
