Movie Info

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on "The Green Book" to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger-as well as unexpected humanity and humor-they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

It's not quite Racism for Dummies, but the strokes are so broad and the tone so breezy that "I saw Green Book" could qualify as the new "I have a black friend."

The tone leans sentimental, if not quite sugary. But the actors' honest chemistry takes Farrelly's movie to the next level. This small tale of American goodness deserves your full attention.

In a world that seems to get uglier every day, this movie's gentle heart and mere humanity feel like a salve.

Witty and warm as cashmere, Green Book is a two-hander in which both stars soar with humor and heart.

Tony and "Doc" don't just learn from each other; this is heroic two-hander in which they both save each other too.

Nov 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Thanks in large part to the winning chemistry between Ali and Mortensen, and a pretty darn inspirational true-life story as its foundation, this was one of the best times I've had at the movies this year.
