Obama First-Date Movie ‘Southside With You’ Reveals First Look (Photos)

Film tells story of First Couple’s inaugural day together in 1989

IM Global has released the first images from its film depicting the first date of Barack and Michelle Obama, “Southside With You.”

The film covers the First Couple’s first night out in 1989 when a young associate named Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) tried to woo lawyer Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) one summer day.

They went to the Art Institute of Chicago, then a screening of Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing” and finally to an ice cream parlor, where they shared their first kiss.

Richard Tanne will make his directorial debut on the project from his own screenplay. IM Global is producing along with State Street Pictures, the production company behind the “Barbershop” franchise.
