Watch Barack & Michelle Obama’s First Date Come To Life In ‘Southside With You’

We’ll all be sad when the Obamas officially move out of The White House next year. Much has been made of Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date which ended with them screening Do The Right Thing and going out for ice cream after, and director Richard Tanne is bringing that story to the big screen for the first time with Southside With You. 

The film, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, takes place over the course of the full day of law associate Barack (Parker Sawyers) and lawyer Michelle’s (Tika Sumpter) first date in 1989. Check it above. Southside With You is in theaters August 26.
