Description

Academy Award® nominee Viggo Mortensen and Academy Award® winner Mahershala Ali star in Green Book, a film inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class, and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line. When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Donald Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on "The Green Book" to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African- Americans. Confronted with racism, danger as well as unexpected humanity and humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

    I was expecting overly dramatic sensationalism at certain points in the movie, and was very pleased there was none. It was sweet and satisfying.

    I did not think I would enjoy this movie, but it gave me perspective. I was not alive at the time it is based from but seeing how the word worked and the story of this man opened my eyes. The film was so moving and made me feel all types of emotion. So amazing.

    The controversy has been disproven, as audio has surfaced of interviews where Don Shirley discussing his friendship with Tony the Lip. Not all white people were racist, as this film shows. Well it shows that a radiator could change to be more accurate. It is also clear that Shirley helped Lip just as much, so it’s not a one sided “hero trope.”

    What's up with Lawrence Ware of the NY Times, who claims to speak for all black folks with his misguided comment about this screenplay? Ware seems irritated that the movie would be at all appealing to white audiences as well as blacks. Is this just supposed to be an Afrocentric movie? No, it's a movie for all people who enjoy Shirley's awesome music and the story of his life. Listen to the Academy Awards...don't listen to the stilted, jilted NY Times.

    Enjoyed this movie a lot. Smart, funny, great story, important point, no lectures but the point on race is extremely well done. This is how we get beyond race. We are all just people. With problems. With talents. And yes, also race, heritage. So what? Solid movie. Really good.
