Winner of the 2019 Oscar for Best Picture, along with Mahershala Ali’s second statuette for Best Supporting Actor, ‘Green Book’ is inspired by the true story of a journey taken by two men into the Deep South of the US in the 1960s.
Don Shirley (Ali) is a gifted and popular classical pianist. He hires Tony (Viggo Mortensen) as his driver on a tour through the racially-divided south. Initially antagonistic towards each other, the men gradually become friends. In doing so, they come to understand their respective worlds and the challenges they face.
★★★★ "Ali and Mortensen make a tremendously engaging odd couple." - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
★★★★ "A supremely likeable film." - John Nugent, Empire
