SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU (2016) Movie Trailer: Michelle & Barack Obama’s First Date

Tika Sumpter Parker Sawyers Southside with You

Southside with You Trailer. Richard Tanne‘s Southside with You (2016) movie trailer stars Tika Sumpter, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Alex Zelenka, Phillip Edward Van Lear, and Parker Sawyers. Southside with You‘s plot synopsis: “Inspired by Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date, SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU recounts the eventful summer day in 1989 when a young law firm associate named Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) tried to woo lawyer Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) during a daylong date that took them from the Art Institute of Chicago to a screening of Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing to the site of their first kiss outside of an ice cream parlor.”

I was surprised at the quality of the film presented in this trailer. This film looks far better and far richer than I had original assumed, showing the different aspects of the two lead characters, and how a bond between them begins to grow throughout the day. Drew Stelter was able to review Southside with You at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and had this to say of the film:

Its greatest strength is also its weakness: it’s heavy on the talk, something audiences might not expect. But you may just find yourself falling in love with the two of them falling in love. I sure did.

Southside with You also stars Deborah Geffner, Taylar Fondren, Preston Tate Jr., Jerod Haynes, Fred Nance Jr., Donald Paul, Tom McElroy, Deanna Reed-Foster, and Tony E. Brown.
