Is it a feel-good charmer poised to rake in greenbacks and Oscar gold? You bet! But don't let that keep you away from this overall well balanced (and timed) look forward from the safe distance of America's motley past.

First-rate execution can't solve all of a film's problems, but Mortensen and Ali offer a reminder that it can solve an awful lot of them.

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).

Moving and poignant, funny and delightful, Green Book offers a story about belonging and figuring out who you are that will surely warm even the hardest of hearts. Just superb.

Feels like a relic, offering a Band-Aid for a wound far too deep to be healed by such surface-level hokum.

At turns poignant, heartwarming and funny, you'll be able to take your petulant teen, your fussy in-laws and everyone in between to this simple yet powerful story of resilience, growth and friendship.
