THIS fas­ci­nat­ing doc­u­men­tary, fol­low­ing First Lady Michelle Obama on her

Be­com­ing book tour, de­liv­ers in­ter­est­ing tit­bits from the open­ing min­utes. Join­ing Oprah Win­frey on stage in her home town of Chicago, Mrs Obama takes the au­di­ence back to her fi­nal day and night in the White House be­fore Don­ald Trump and his wife Me­la­nia were set to move in. While the rest of the world was still com­ing to terms with the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion re­sult, Mrs Obama had plenty on her china plate – in­clud­ing a last-minute re­quest from her daugh­ters’ school friends to stay overnight for one last sleep­over. Giv­ing in to their fi­nal re­quest, she re­calls be­ing like a drill sergeant, wak­ing the kids up and push­ing them out the door be­fore her own fam­ily had to pack up and take one fi­nal flight in Marine One (the pres­i­den­tial chop­per); where she re­vealed she “sobbed for 30 min­utes”.
