In the scene outside the movie theater screening Do the Right Thing (1989), Mr. Goodman asks Michelle and Barack if they think Mookie did the right thing in the climactic scene. In the DVD commentary, Spike Lee said he has only been asked this question by white viewers, and that viewers who question the riot's justification are implicitly failing to see the difference between property and the life of a black man.
On a summer's day in 1989, a law associate named Barack Obama used all his charms to woo attorney Michelle Robinson. Southside with You (2016) brings that magical encounter to life as it follows Barack and Michelle on a day-long date that takes them from an art exhibit to a screening of Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing (1989) to an unforgettable first kiss.
The movie is inspired by President Barack Obama's first "date" with the First Lady, the touching and inspirational romance. Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyers star as the couple in this moving look at the very beginnings of the couple we now know as the President and First Lady of the United States.
