*Here’s a movie that hasn’t been much talked about: “The Obama Effect.”
Starring Charles Dutton, Vanessa Calloway, and Meagan Good, the movie is about the Obama fever of 2008 and focuses on the life of one man who deals with the ups and downs of the campaign.
The plot starts off when John Thomas, an insurance salesman, becomes obsessed with getting Barack Obama elected. He drops everything else in his life and neglects relationships to work vigorously on the campaign. But his health begins to struggle and his strong supportive wife knows nothing about it.

Life gets twisted into a huge knot as family members go against John’s philosophies, his wife and daughter, played by Meagan, feel rejected and forgotten, and tension rises between him and his son.
Of course there has to be some sort redemption in the storyline. So the main character finally gets exposed and his wife finds out about his health issues. He begins to focus more on his life as he watches the man he supported so earnestly, rises to the top.
Check out the trailer:
