CAST: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini DIRECTOR: Peter Farrelly ENDING 3/14
When a bouncer from the Bronx is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley, 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.
A touching and meaningful look at race and class in America, the likes of which studios rarely produce anymore.Eric Kohn, indieWire
Farrelly elevates this real story from a funny anecdote to a moving and thought-provoking fable about the difficulties of being a full person in a multi-faceted world.Manuela Lazic, Vague Visages
