Peter Farrelly (2018)Mahershala Ali, Viggo Mortensen Rated 12A Run time 130 mins
A working-class Italian-American bouncer becomes the driver of an African-American classical pianist on a tour of venues through the 1960s American Deep South. The film’s title comes from a handbook for African-American drivers, telling them just what to do to stay out of trouble in the Jim Crow south. On one level this is a road movie with two brilliant performances in the main roles and some feel-good moments, but it also takes a hard look at the racial prejudice in America.

“It’s light and breezy and matter-of-fact and truly, truly entertaining.”
“”Green Book” is one of those rare crowd pleasers with the chops to go the Oscar distance. It’s a film most easily described as a reverse “Driving Miss Daisy” (1989) when really it’s so much more than that.”
