Romance is blooming in the first trailer for Southside With You, a new movie which charts the relationship between a young Barack Obama and his future wife, Michelle.
It's an everyday story of boy meets girl, boy goes on to become most powerful man in the world and the film is inspired by accounts of the First Couple’s very first date.
