Matthew D. McCallum,
A young woman participates in a medical study. After a series of nightmares and unusual side effects, the line between dreams and reality is blurred. She finds herself on the run from those involved, desperate to uncover the truth.
Hitch, the most popular Rideshare app, has created safe rides for millions. At least, that's what they want you to think. It was only a matter of time before the story went public. The story of that one night. That one, horrific night.
The "Southside" of the film's title refers to a southern district of Chicago, Illinois, where future President Barack Obama worked among the poor as a community organizer. The Wikipedia website defines this region as follows: "The South Side is part of the city of Chicago, Illinois. It is one of the three major parts of the city, the others being the West Side and the North Side (there is no East Side, due to the presence of Lake Michigan). Much of it evolved from the city's incorporation of independent townships, such as Hyde Park. The city's "sides" have historically been divided by the Chicago River and its branches." See more »
The Obamas actually ate lunch on their first date beside the fountain at the Art Institute of Chicago and not in a park as depicted in the movie. See more »
The production and photography are very good, so you can see that a considerable amount of money was spent in this film.
It has good moments, good acting also, but at the end it becomes clear that as a propaganda movie for Michelle Obama to run as the democrat candidate in 2020. Everyone knows how popular Mrs. Obama is, and the movie was made to show other sides of her in a wave of appeals to emotion and tries very hard to make her larger than life, the perfection goal to all human beings.
And that's the moment when it lost me. The movie becomes something you would see in a TV commercial that has that voice at the end saying "Michelle Obama approves this ad".
Well, that's it, didn't like it. Too fake and "robotic" to my taste.
