What’s Coming to HBO Max in August 2021, Including ‘Obama: In Pursuit of a More Perfect Union’ and ‘Reminiscence’

Fern Siegel

The journey of Barack Obama, from his early upbringing in Hawaii to becoming the first black U.S. president, is told through the prism of the country’s racial history. The prejudice he faced, the Republican intransigence he confronted on Capitol Hill and the nation’s embrace of his candidacy are movingly explored in the HBO Max documentary Obama: In Pursuit of a More Perfect Union, directed by Peter Kunhardt.

And, as part of Warner Media’s ongoing decision to release original films in theaters and its streamer on the same day, the sci-fi movie Reminiscence debuts this month. Scientist Nick Bannister (Hugh Jackman, “X Men”) offers his clients a way to use technology to relive their pasts. Then he meets and falls for Mae (Rebecca Ferguson, “The White Queen”). But when one of his clients implicates Mae in a violent past, Bannister is forced to search for the truth.

    19. august 2021

    Nicolas Bannister, en robust og ensom veteran, der bor i et nær fremtidigt Miami oversvømmet af stigende hav, som er ekspert i en farlig besættelse: han giver kunderne mulighed for at genopleve enhver hukommelse, de ønsker. Hans liv ændrer sig, når han møder en mystisk ung kvinde ved navn Mae. Det, der begynder som et simpelt spørgsmål om tabt og fundet, bliver til et lidenskabeligt kærlighedsforhold. Men når en anden klients minder inddrager Mae i en række voldsforbrydelser, skal Bannister dykke ned i fortidens mørke verden for at afdække sandheden om den kvinde, han faldt for.
