Southside with You
Rating = B-
This film portrays a day-long
first date between the Obamas. Both actors have done a good job with their characters — close
enough but not to the point of being a mimic. The snappy talk between them is fun. Apparently
most of the story is taken from what the couple have stated publicly over the years, but
with a little fictionalizing added.
