The evening of August 9th, ended with a screening of “Southside With You” at 7:30 p.m. at Edgartown Cinemas, 65 Main Street, Edgartown, MA. The film, written and directed by Richard Tanne, set in 1989 Chicago, is the charming and witty reimagining of the first date between Barack and Michelle Obama.

I had the opportunity to meet actor, Parker Sawyers, who does an amazing job at portraying Barack Obama.  Check out the movie trailer:
