Young Chicago lawyers Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) and Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) spend a sweltering summer afternoon visiting the art museum, eating lunch together, watching Do The Right Thing, getting some ice cream and sharing a first kiss in this dramatization of the President and First Lady's fateful first date. Director Richard Tanne's debut feature premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.~Violet LeVoit
Southside with You is not a great film, yet it is one that will move every viewer. We all remember our first date, but do we every think about someone else's first date, especially that of our former President and Fisrt Lady? This film is a wonderful mirror reflection of the lives of two people who are admired, respected and loved the world over, and it gives us a look at our President and First Lady before either had any indication how their lives would eventually change American history.
Bought this for a friend for her birthday. She loved the optics that the Obamas suggested. I find it dangerous to make a film about the love story between a political figure and his wife. It just feels tasteless in its elitism, and romanticism about politics.
Ugh. But my friend was happy.
We were wary of this film when we first heard of it, but it was spoken of so positively that we knew we would want to buy it, and how glad we are that we did so. We will want to revisit it at times, because it is the story of two young people tentatively reaching out to each other and also the story of two young people who became extraordinary forces for our country.
Excellent movie about the president and First Lady and how they meet and feel in love! I love this movie. This movie is a keeper. You can always go back and look at this and it will warm your heart every time you watch it. Excellent movie!!
