SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU Official Trailer: A Story About Barack & Michelle’s First Date




The trailer for the highly anticipated film SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU, the love story inspired by Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date, was just released today and we love everything about it. Especially the perfect casting!

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. The film also stars Vanessa Bell Calloway and Jerod Haynes.

Directed and written by Richard Tanne, and executive produced by John Legend, Miramax and Roadside Attractions will release SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU in theaters August 26, 2016. We can’t wait!
