COMING SOON: Green Book
From 1 Feb
Director: Peter Farrelly
Starring: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini
Duration: 130 min
Funny, moving and thought-provoking all at once, this festival favourite tells the uplifting true story of an unlikely friendship that transcended race and class. In 1962, Italian-American bouncer Tony Lip (Mortensen) is hired to chauffeur African-American pianist Dr Don Shirley (Ali) on a concert tour through the Deep South. They must rely on The Green Book, a guide to the few establishments that are safe for African-Americans, to make it through a journey that will change both of their lives.
