Green Book (12a)

Director Peter Farrelly. Comedy/Drama/Biography


In 1962, "Tony Lip" Vallelonga, a tough bouncer, looking for work becomes the driver for African-American classical pianist Don Shirley on his concert tour into the Deep South states. They begin their trek armed with The Negro Motorist Green Book, a travel guide for safe travel through America's racial segregation. Together, the snobbishly erudite pianist and the crudely practical bouncer barely get along. The disparate pair witness and endure appalling injustices on the road and nurture a friendship and understanding that changes both their lives.

Starring Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Well worth the Oscar! It was a bit slow to get into the film, but soon developed into a funny, thought provoking Film.

Quirky but in the end delightful. The story of the unlikely tour of the Southern States by an Afro-American musician and his racist Italian-American driver in the early 1960's when Coloureds were still excluded in so many ways. Just sit back and look at how far things have changed (or maybe they haven't) in 60 years.

Slow very american start which improved into a very human story. Caused applause from the audience
