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.
