Inspired by Barack and Michelle Obama's first date, Southside With You recounts the eventful summer day in 1989 when a charming young law associate named Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) tries to woo reluctant attorney Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) during a daylong date that takes them from an art exhibit to a screening of Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing to a sweet first kiss outside of a Baskin-Robbins ice-cream parlor.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Southside With You looks back on a fateful real-life date with strong performances and engaging dialogue, adding up to a romance that makes for a pretty good date movie in its own right.
Witty, winning, but sometimes long-winded tale of love.
