Southside With You: A Movie About Barack and Michelle Obama


OMG! OMG! OMG! Finally, a movie about our President and First Lady. I’m beyond excited. The film “Southside With You” began taping a few days ago in Chicago, and a few pics have been released.

Pictured here are Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyers. I think it’s pretty easy to guess who’s playing who. The two are out for a stroll in Chicago’s Hyde Park, on their “first date.”


Barack and Michelle’s story is an interesting one. According to the President, he asked Michelle out on numerous occasions, only to be CURVED with the quickness. Michelle, always a class act, let Barack know that because she was his adviser, that a relationship wouldn’t be appropriate. After Barack offered to quit his job, Michelle finally gave in and went on a date with ol’ Barry O.

According to E! News, Barack “treated her to the finest ice cream Baskin-Robbins had to offer,” he told O, The Oprah Magazine. After they’d enjoyed their desserts, Barack got in a kiss, “and it tasted like chocolate,” he said. (Adorably enough, there’s an historical plaque commemorating this smooch at the exact corner where it took place!)

Michelle remembers her hubby being dynamic and super cool…

“He showed all the sides [of himself],” said Michelle with a smile. “He was hip, cutting-edge, cultural, sensitive—the fountain, nice touchthe walk, patient…” she told E!

All I’m going to say is, I think we can all agree that Michelle (and Barack) made the right decision. Just goes to show you, don’t be so quick to turn a man down, ladies…he might be the next President of the United States.

Can we just take a moment to just fawn over them?

Are you excited?
