Southside with You is the film equivalent of a comfortable pair of familiar shoes, the feeling of sitting down into a cosy chair, or the first sip of a cup of tea – it’s ‘nice’. That is to damn with rather faint praise. This may not be one for the ages, but there is a lot to like about Richard Tanne’s debut feature. In a sprightly 80 minutes it recounts one of the most significant first dates in history.
Southside With You is released in the UK on 30th September – visit CineVue to read the full review here.
