|The "Green Book" is a gem. Viggo Mortensen and Mahersala Ali have delivered to the maximum of their acting skills in a movie which
is a true story about a famous black jazz pianist and his white Italian-American chauffeur. The movie showcases the racial segragation
in the United States in the 60's and goes through the struggle of Dr. Don Shirley during his tour around the southern states which are
the harshest against black people. Tony Lip, who is a working class bouncer and Dr. Shirley's driver during this tour, will soon realise
that the task in which he engaged will make him reconsider about racial stereotypes and will have a 2 month trip in which he will be reborn.
Impressively well written script which smoothly takes the audience off for a smooth, funny but also emotional "ride".
Great food for thought which I always appreciate in a movie.
A movie anyone would have to watch. My personal favorite for "Best Motion Picture" in the 2019 Oscars.
