About

One warm summer’s day in 1989, a young law firm associate takes a colleague on an epic first date across Chicago's South Side. They attend a community meeting, take in a screening of Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing, eat ice cream and slowly fall for each other. His name was Barack Obama and she was the future first lady Michelle Robinson. Reminiscent of Richard Linklater’s Before trilogy, this intelligent and engaging romance is perfectly cast and performed and has the added frisson of knowing what life has in store for the young couple.

Dir: Richard Tanne. Cast: Tika Sumpter, Parker Sawyers, Vanessa Bell Calloway
