‘Southside with You’ Trailer Starring Tika Sumpter

SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU TRAILERSouthside with You, the independent film that purports to tell the story of Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date during the summer of 1989, has been given its first official trailer. The film stars actress Tika Sumpter as Michelle and Parker Sawyers as Barack, and will makes its debut at the Sundance Film Festival next month.

Tika also helped pen the script and is listed as one of the film’s producers. She appears to do an amazing job as Michelle in the clip, as does Parker, who really manages to capture the President’s mannerisms.

The film will reportedly get a limited release later this year, though no official date has been given


  1. A definite rental. 🙂 Love Tika. I remember when she was on “One Life to Live” (ABC), back when we had soap operas and soap operas were great.
