Tanne's film is no mere First Couple valentine."Southside With You" is, in a way, a portrait of a president-to-be as a young John Cusack.Their stops include an African American art exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago and a community meeting in a church (something incorporated here from a later date) where "Brother Barack" flashes his speech-making skills.They drive a little and walk a little through Chicago's Southside, but they're also passing through a larger cultural atmosphere. Approximately half the movie-going electorate will have little interest in "Southside With You" but the film is essentially devoid of politics."Southside With You" is screening in Beirut-area theaters.
