Southside With You
The Miramax and Roadside Attractions release chronicles the first date of future President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Robinson (played by Parker Sawyers and Tika Sumpter, respectively). Based on true events, the film sees Obama, a then-Harvard Law summer associate, ask out an attorney from the prestigious corporate law firm where they both work. On the historic date, the two talk about politics and activism. The love story also marks the feature debut for writer-director Richard Tanne.
