Inspired by Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date, Southside With You recounts the eventful summer day in 1989 when a charming young law associate named Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) tries to woo reluctant attorney Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) during a daylong date that takes them from the Art Institute of Chicago to a screening of Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing to a sweet first kiss outside of a Baskin-Robbins ice-cream parlor.

“This tender, intimate drama has the grand resonance of a historical epic.” — Richard Brody (The New Yorker)
