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.

"Green Book" is a savvy and super effective piece of popular entertainment.

Peter Farrelly has fun with stereotypes but he also explodes them, especially the old canard of "polite" racism that is anything but.

Nov 15, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

There's not much here you haven't seen before, and very little that can't be described as crude, obvious and borderline offensive, even as it tries to be uplifting and affirmative.

"Green Book" fires on all cylinders, creating the kind of satisfying mainstream moviegoing experience that many observers thought Hollywood had forgotten how to make.

Nov 15, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

It's the kind of movie that hammers on your heart even as it's tripping over its feet, hobbled by unexamined notions of race, ethnicity, and class. Don't look too closely, and you'll have a very good time.

There's something so deeply right about this movie, so true to the time depicted and so welcome in this moment; so light in its touch, so properly respectful of its characters, and so big in its spirit that the movie acquires a glow.
