Barack Obama has revealed his favorite books, television shows, songs, and movies of 2019.

The former president listed his recommendation of comedies, dramas and thrillers on social media Sunday.

“This year’s list includes everything from explorations of class dynamics and relationships, to an inspired reboot of a classic graphic novel, to a portal back to one of the most special places in history — an Aretha Franklin concert,” Obama wrote in the caption.

Among his favorite films were “Booksmart,” “The Farewell,” “Ford v. Ferrari,” Martin Scorsese-directed “The Irishman,” “Just Mercy,” “Little Women” and “Marriage Story.”

Obama’s favorite TV shows are “Fleabag,” “Unbelievable” and “Watchmen.”

In addition, he noted his Netflix documentary “American Factory” as one of his favs. The title was co-produced with wife Michelle Obama.

“Of course, there’s also American Factory, a film from our own production company, Higher Ground, that was recently shortlisted for an Oscar. It’s our first offering in partnership with Netflix, and I’m excited about the other projects we’ve got in the works,” Obama said.

On Saturday, Obama recommended his top 19 books of the past year.

Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing my annual list of favorites — books, films, and music — with all of you. This has become a fun little tradition for me, and I hope it is for you, too. Because while each of us has plenty that keeps us busy—work and family life, social and volunteer commitments—outlets like literature and art can enhance our day-to-day experiences. They’re the fabric that helps make up a life—the album that lifts us up after a long day, the dog-eared paperback we grab off the shelf to give to a friend, the movie that makes us think and feel in a new way, works that simply help us escape for a bit. To start, here are the books that made the last year a little brighter for me. Most of them came out in 2019, but a few were older ones that were new to me this year. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
