Green Book

Fri 15 – Thu 21 Feb 2019

Set in 1962 America, Green Book follows Italian-American Tony Lip (Mortensen), who is hired to chauffeur African-American pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Ali) on a concert tour through the Deep South.

Don is ware of the troubles that he might face in different locations due to the colour of his skin and requires someone to act as both staff and protector. Tony isn’t an obvious choice – his views on race are problematic to say the least – but he carries the required muscle and the unlikely pair embark on a road trip that’s bound to change both of their lives.

Best known for his crowd-pleasing comedies Dumb and Dumber and There’s Something About Mary , director Peter Farrelly delivers a heartwarming surprise with Green Book and shines while directing both the funnier moments and dramatic beats. The film also doesn’t sugarcoat the tensions of the time, serving as a significant reminder of the challenges that everyday racism can still bring upon us.
