4 stars out of 4 -- "Heady topics aside, SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU is often hilarious and never loses its old-fashioned sweetness....The two leads are both excellent..." - 08/26/2016 RogerEbert.com


"[T]he film sends the young Barack and Michelle on a walk-and-talk outing across Chicago, as they chat about their lives, their ambitions, and their responsibility to the city. It’s a bit like BEFORE SUNRISE, only with the leader of the free world in the Ethan Hawke role." -- Grade: B+ - 08/25/2016 A.V. Club


"Ms. Sumpter’s enunciation has a near-metonymic precision suggestive of Mrs. Obama’s, while Mr. Sawyers’s gestural looseness, playful smile and lanky saunter will be familiar." - 08/25/2016 New York Times


"Both Parker Sawyers as Barack and Tika Sumpter as Michelle are more than effective, charismatic players. The people they create are so involving in and of themselves we would be interested in their story no matter who they were." - 08/25/2016 Los Angeles Times


"SOUTHSIDE doesn’t hang on epiphanies; instead, it delivers something more modest: a tender, unrushed love story." -- Grade: B - 08/25/2016 Entertainment Weekly


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Both Sawyers and Sumpter are terrific, world-class charmers who suggest the powerhouses they're playing without undue mimickry." - 08/24/2016 Rolling Stone


"[C]ompelling for the way it celebrates a powerful partnership by unraveling its earliest moments." - 08/26/2016 The Atlantic


"SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU possesses a mellow, languorous vibe, an infectious easygoing charm that insinuates itself gently, then seductively, as the couple at its center experiences the stirrings of what might be true love." - 08/24/2016 Washington Post
