Stills from the upcoming film, Southside With You, which chronicles Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date, have been released.

Tika Sumpter plays the future First Lady, alongside Parker Sawyer as Barack Obama. Via The Hollywood Reporter:

As the President tells it in his book, the couple went for ice cream; he recognized that he needed to lock this goddess down and kissed her for the first time. The film follows them on their first date to see Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing and stroll around the South Side of Chicago.

Despite the fact that Parker Sawyer looks nothing like Barack Obama and I choose to believe that Michelle did a little better in the outfit department on that lovely evening, this all looks pretty adorable.
