We NEED to see Oba-more...

Rebecca Keane

We’re swooning.

It’s hard to deny that Michelle and Barack Obama are couple goals. They’re stylish, smart, clever and have two beautiful daughters – Malia and Natasha.

She’s a lawyer, activist, and writer, he’s the first black President of the United States. It’s obvious they make a great team.

So we’re more than excited to hear that there’s going to be film based on their epic first date.

Southside of You – a romantic comedy film, written by Richard Tanne is based on the couple’s first date on an evening in Chicago in 1989 and their first kiss outside an ice cream parlor.

The roles of Michelle and Barack are played by actors and Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyers, and the short clip shows the two exploring southside Chicago for a day together.

The trailer has given us ALL THE FEELS.

The film is due to be released in US cinemas on August 2016, with no date for Irish cinemas not yet confirmed.
