This is one special movie.
And the most powerful leader in the world acknowledged it as such!
President Obama and Michelle Obama recently sat down with People to talk about everything and it just so happens that everything includes their favorite movies!
And while the President is a fan of Richard Linklater's nearly three hour epic movie Boyhood, Michelle is actually a fan of another, less participated in, kind of entertainment…
Here's what President Obama said was his most favorite movie in 2014:
"Boyhood was a great movie. That, I think, was my favorite movie this year."
And here's what Michelle said afterwards:
"I've read others [since, but] I read Gone Girl a couple summers ago, which is one of my favorites. The book is much better than the movie."
The two also talked about other things from their lives, like an intimate moment they shared when they dropped everything and just danced together. The First Lady said:
"Barack was the D.J."
President Obama then revealed what playlist he put on, saying:
"We started with Aretha [Franklin]'s Rock Steady. Sly and the Family Stone. Then we ended the night on Al Green, and everybody did a slow dance."
But the power couple also revealed they've both experienced forms of racism. Which is definitely relevant after an email exchange was leaked that had Sony Picture's Amy Pascal and Hollywood producer Scott Rudin bantering over what Obama's favorite movie was.
The Sony execs made some gross jokes about how it was probably movies starring black casts, including The Butler and 12 Years A Slave.

Here's what President Obama said:
"There's no black male my age, who's a professional, who hasn't come out of a restaurant and is waiting for their car and somebody didn't hand them their car keys."
It's awful to think that such gross behavior still happens today even to the most powerful couple on the planet!
We hope that all changes soon.
Oh, and great choice on movies, Mr. President!
