The film written and directed by Richard Tanne was first released at this year’s Sundance Film festival back in January. It stars actress Tika Sumpter as Michelle and actor Parker Sawyers as the future president, Barack Obama.

According to the film’s synopsis, the movie is set in 1989 when the two were beginning to know each other. Tanne’s biopic will chronicle the couple’s first date as they travel across Chicago’s southside visiting different locales.
