Peter Far­relly

“Green Book”

Variety - - Contenders -

Sight un­seen, Far­relly’s “Green Book” seemed to prom­ise the sort of cat­nip that the Academy has long been al­most help­less to re­sist. Once in re­lease, the film took a bit of a turn, with a slower-than- ex­pected start and var­i­ous con­tro­ver­sies tak­ing a bit of a toll. The film’s nu­mer­ous ad­mir­ers do not ap­pear to be de­terred, how­ever, and buoyed by an au­di­ence award from Toronto and a “best film” des­ig­na­tion from the Na­tional Board of Re­view, Farelly has racked up best direc­tor nom­i­na­tions from the Golden Globes and the Crit­ics Choice Awards.
