Here’s a first official look at Parker Sawyers as Barack Obama and Tika Sumpter as Michelle Robinson in Southside With You, the upcoming biography romantic drama movie written and directed by Richard Tanne:
“A delicate and charming romantic journey, inspired by romantic classics such as Before Sunrise, SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU tells the story of Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date. In the summer of 1989 Michelle and Barack were simply two fresh-faced college graduates starting their lives and their law careers in Chicago. After much prodding from Barack, Michelle finally agrees to attend a community meeting with him in Chicago’s South Side neighborhood as friends. What starts as a platonic day out – ends with a kiss and the beginning of a journey to the White House.”
Well, Actress Tika Sumpter does look like Michelle Obama. But I don’t see Barack Obama in Parker Sawyers… Do you?
The film has yet to get an official release date.
Anyway, stay tuned with us for more details about the movie Southside With You.
