Near the beginning of the film, a CTA Green Line train is seen on the elevated tracks. The train clearly consists of the newer 5000-series cars, which did not exist until 2011 and did not enter service on the Green Line until 2012. The film is supposedly set in 1989 when the 2000-series cars (four generations earlier than the 5000-series) would still be exclusively in use on this line.
Furthermore, although the "Green Line" markings are clearly visible on each car, the CTA did not assign color to each line until 1995, so this line would have been known as the Englewood/Jackson Park branch in 1989, not the Green Line as depicted in the film. See more »
Southside with You tries to tell the romantic story of Obama and Michelle's relationship by giving us a deep look into the lives of the future best family in the U.S, but sadly it falters a bit as it tries to make the romance interesting with thought provoking debates about the world and there clashing ideals. The film just lacks a lot of focus on what it wants to really be and how much of the story it wants to tell.
The acting is actually the best part of the film as Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyers really try there best to the weak script compelling and interesting to see. There chemistry is quite incompatible and makes for a fun and engaging experience to see portrayed on the screen.
But good chemistry can't save a pretty meh script and pretty average directing done by Richard Tanne. The film just can't engage you enough and instead feels dull and also really boring to watch as well.
Overall Southside by You tries to be interesting but misses the mark
