BAFTA AWARDS BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR FOR MAHERSHALA ALI.
5 OSCAR NOMINATIONS INCLUDING BEST PICTURE, BEST ACTOR VIGGO MORTENSEN & BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR MAHERSHALA ALI.
"Call this actors’ duet sentimental and simplistic at your own peril. Green Book may well move you, possibly to tears, at the thought of real social change and kindness (at a time when we need it badly)."
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
"Awards-bait or not, Green Book plays as a deftly disarming film about friendship and unity in divisive times: calculated, perhaps, but calculated from a kind, sincere place."
- Kevin Harley, Total Film
"A supremely likeable film. Its message might seem obvious and its template overcooked, but it boasts a warm heart, with two astoundingly good lead performances to guide it home."
- John Nugent, Empire Magazine
"Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali give this civil rights fairy tale a lift. Both actors give such nuanced performances that audiences will swallow the sentimental moralising of Peter Farrelly’s Oscar-nominated film "
-Geoffrey Macnab, Independent
Dr. Don Shirley is a world-class African-American pianist who’s about to embark on a concert tour in the Deep South in 1962. In need of a driver and protection, Shirley recruits Tony Lip, a tough-talking bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx. Despite their differences, the two men soon develop an unexpected bond while confronting racism and danger in an era of segregation.
