*The new Miramax film, “Southside With You” tells the story of how Barack and Michelle Obama began their courtship. It shows how surprisingly different the two were and how very unlikely they were to end up together.
However, their mutual passion to help others piqued interest in one another which led them to create a relationship. The film makes you want to let go of limitations because, knowing the success the Obamas attained, you see that they both decided to make each other be the best versions of themselves.
