"First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him ... they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas, middle of America... There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America's first black president hasn't arisen yet. He's not America's first black president — he's America's first mixed-race president."

A question that filmmakers are sometimes told to ask themselves before deciding to embark on any project is whether it's a film that just has to be made - maybe because it's filling some need that's been relatively ignored. Rob Reiner's The Magic Of Belle Isle is as conventional and predictable a narrative as you can get in 2012, which left me wondering why it was made in the first place.

Can't say I've heard much buzz around this project... yet; although it won't be out until July 6th, which seems like an odd date to release a drama like this. But maybe the thinking is that it could be a bit of counter programming, given what will be a deluge of mega-budgeted summer action flicks.
