    Southside With You
    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, Rovi

      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.

      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.

      When this movie was released in the theaters I, like a lot of people I'm sure, had high hopes it would be a good movie. After seeing it finally on DVD I was slightly disappointed. It only covered the early courtship of Barak and Michelle. Nothing more. In retrospect, that was fine but expected more.

      A charming story about a couple who would later become the President and First Lady of the USA. Offers a window into the personal life of their meeting and love story. A night in date movie.

      I did view and enjoy this movie. I am glad I purchased this movie verses going to the movie theater to see it. Again, I do recommend this movie for a movie night viewing.
