(WTNH)–The first look at the Barack and Michelle Obama movie is here.

The film Southside With You, produced by John Legend chronicles Barack and Michelle having their first date from start to finish in Chicago.

Writer and director, Richard Tanne turned this film into a dramatic romantic-comedy.

Upcoming actor, Parker Sawyers stars as the future president, who takes a summer job at a Chicago law firm in 1989. He meets his boss, young attorney named Michelle Robinson who is played by Tika Sumpter, and after some determination by Obama, she agrees to spend the day with him.
