Former President Barack Obama followed his top book picks of 2019 by turning America's attention to the big and small screens, sharing his most-loved movies and TV shows of the year.

"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 Sunday in a Facebook post.

The 44th president's picks this year range from well-reviewed features to documentaries, including "Parasite," "Little Women," "Marriage Story," "The Irishman" and the new Netflix documentary "American Factory," a film from Barack and Michelle Obama's production company, Higher Ground.
