If you’re a Republican president, Hollywood gives you Alzheimer’s mockumentaries and “W,” but when you’re a liberal president Hollywood is a little more lenient:

The Sundance indie Southside With You is your classic boy-meets-girl romance, chronicling one couple’s first date from start to finish. The only catch? That couple later went on to become the U.S. commander-in-chief and the first lady.

Writer-director Richard Tanne took Barack and Michelle Obama’s rom-com meet-cute and dramatized it for Southside With You, which premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival. Now, John Legend, who executive produced the film, has shared the first trailer, which gives us a fictionalized look at the Obamas’ first-ever date.

Brace yourselves for the trailer (Chris Matthews has dibs on the director’s cut):

There’s only one question to settle now: Greatest love story of OUR time, or of ALL time?

But it isn’t just a romantic comedy — serious issues are also confronted:

Southside With You follows a young Barack and Michelle Obama on their first date on a particularly hot day in Chicago.

That date was the beginning of the end for global warming.
