PREVIEW

WHAT IS IT... A road trip drama with great lead ac­tors WHY GO... Bril­liant per­for­mances and strong story DI­REC­TOR Peter Far­relly RE­LEASE DATE Nov 29 (TBA) WHAT HAP­PENS WHEN a rough Ital­ianamer­i­can from the Bronx takes a world-class African-amer­i­can pi­anist on a con­cert tour to the Deep South of the US? A lot of bick­er­ing, ban­ter be­tween two men on com­pletely dif­fer­ent paths in life, and a whole lot of im­por­tant life lessons to be learned.

Based on a true story, Green Book ap­pears to one of those im­por­tant “on the road” dra­mas that mixes witty lines and morally sig­nià­cant mo­ments very well. We couldn’t have asked for a bet­ter cast ei­ther, as the chem­istry be­tween Academy Award win­ner Ma­her­shala Ali and nom­i­nee Viggo Mortensen is some­thing we can’t wait to see un­fold. Ex­pect un­likely ca­ma­raderie and tear­ful mo­ments. Dar­ragh Mur­phy
