There is a new movie coming out about Barack and Michelle Obama's first date, and it will make you fall in love with watching the President and First Lady fall in love. The film, set to come out this August, is called Southside with You, and spoiler alert—the two end up getting together, having kids, and becoming the First Family of the United States.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and has already received positive reviews from multiple critics. Really good-looking actors Parker Sawyers and Tika Sumpter portray Barack Obama and Michelle LaVaughn Robinson respectively, and the two do a pretty convincing job; Sawyers nails Barack's unique speech patterns while Sumpter rocks those Michelle Obama brows like you wouldn't believe.
The movie, produced by John Legend, follows how Barack took Michelle (his boss at the time, very scandalous) on a date through the Southside of Chicago on a summer day in 1989. Although Michelle continually claims that "it's not a date," a kiss over an ice cream cone doesn't lie! The movie seems like a nice departure from the "angry white guys in suits who yell a lot" bio-pics of former Presidents.
Imagine is these two met in the age of Tinder? Michelle never would have swiped right if Barack had a picture up of his crappy car. Seriously, what was going on there?
