Check out the new poster for the Obama-inspired romance, “Southside with You.” It features the captivating Tika Sumpter as Michelle and Parker Sawyers as Barack.
The movie chronicles the summer afternoon of 1989 when the Obamas went on their first date across Chicago’s South Side. Barack fell for Michelle when the two first met at a Chicago law firm. He was a first-year Harvard Law student, who took a job as an associate and she was his much younger boss. After much convincing, Michelle took Barack up on his offer and the two visited the Art Institute, caught Spike Lee’s film, “Do the Right Thing” and shared a curbside kiss in front of Baskin-Robbins in Chicago’s Hyde Park.
Rounding out the cast is Vanessa Bell Calloway, Jerod Haynes, Donald Paul, and Preston Tate Jr. “Southside with You” is taken from Richard Tanne’s screenplay and is executive produced by Tracey Bing and John Legend.
