A Small Little Gem!
Richard Tanne’s ‘Southside with You’ is a pleasant surprise. A Small Little Gem, that’s both charming & engrossing. And if you even thought watching the former U.S President & His Wife/Former First Lady going on their first date as a rather uninteresting concept for a film …think again!
‘Southside with You’ Synopsis: The film chronicles the summer 1989 afternoon when the future President of the United States, Barack Obama, wooed his future First Lady, Michelle Obama, on a first date across Chicago’s South Side.
‘Southside with You’ is a delightful tale of 2 people who went on to create history. You watch & observe them. Its all heart. ‘Southside with You’ is a love-story, but it also covers themes of racism & how America was back in the late 1980’s. Although done subtly, the message is out loud and clear. Obama’s Voice for equality & patience, is shown in great strength & it also shows us a leader who later came into power, because he knew the drill.
Tanne’s Screenplay is excellent. The Writing is of Superior Quality. Not for a minute, does the Writing take a dip, its consistently crisp. Tanne’s Direction, too, is superb. He’s handled the film with precision. Cinematography is perfect. Editing is neat, culminating the film within a sharp 84-minutes. Art & Costume Design are perfectly done.
Performance-Wise: Parker Sawyers and Tika Sumpter as a young Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson, respectively, bring in their A-Game. Parker is a revelation, channeling Obama with grit & tenderness. Tika is a live-wire, She portrays Michelle, with unmistakably honesty. Both the actors, deserve more work in the movies. They’ve got the stuff.
On the whole, ‘Southside with You’ is Magnificent. Don’t dare to miss it.
And yes, I do miss the America when Obama was President!
First date with a chocolate ice cream girl.
A small film with a small success. It was entirely shot in the two weeks of time. Directed by a first timer, it tells the true story of Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson’s first date back in the 1989 during working for a big law firm in Chicago. Like how Michelle denied it is a date as co-workers should not engage in a close relationship. While Obama is trying to win her heart, the film reveals their day, what they talk and do and how it all ends.
This is not a biographical film I was expecting. I mean I was looking forward to the film, but not this kind of simple story. This looks like another version of ‘Before Sunrise’, and I won’t be surprised if they make a sequel in a similar fashion, maybe a trilogy. So this is a one day event when they were young and passionate about their work, somewhat they both liked each other, though they knew their limits. The writer-come-director confirms all the events from his film really occurred, but not all of them in just one date.
The actors were good, especially I liked Parker Sawyers as Barack Obama. For me, this is not a great film, but decently made one. Obama fans might like it, though you could try it if you like date film in a realistic manner. It’s Obama’s early life, so there’s nothing about his present politics or the president post, except talking about their future plans. But most of the film about between them and their life, like how they grew how, what they love and loved, those kind of stuffs. So I hope you watch it with a low expectation.
