ABOUT

Green Book stars Mahershala Ali as Dr Don Shirley, an elegant and aristocratically aloof pianist who practises his art while living alone in an exotically furnished apartment high above Carnegie Hall, and Viggo Mortensen as Vallelonga, a temporarily out-of-work nightclub bouncer whose natural habitat is the street, hired as both a driver and tough-guy troubleshooter to accompany Shirley and his white bandmates on a tour of the Jim Crow American South, still starkly segregated in the unspecified early 1960s setting. (The film takes its title from The Negro Motorist Green Book, designed to help black travellers safely negotiate this hostile territory.)  Sight and Sound 

Winner of 3 Oscars – Best Motion Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Ali) and Best Screenplay

REVIEWS

Mortensen turns in a charming, nuanced and comedically gifted performance that feels like his most accomplished yet.  Ali is even finer, playing an isolated, angry and often inebriated character unable to fully identity with, nor find acceptance within, either white or black communities. A man of few words and well-concealed emotions, the discreet way that he conveys Don’s heartache is, at points, terrifically moving.”   Radio Times

“A fabulous periodic soundtrack featuring jazz, crooners and artists of the time is combined with the classical compositions played so elegantly by Dr Shirley, creating a wonderful auditory experience throughout and ultimately making Green Book a lovely story of companionship in a period of eye-opening, immense hardship.”  The Upcoming
