Movie Review – “Green Book” (2018)

 

 

Certainly the most charming movie of the year, if forced and manipulative at points. What sells “Green Book” is the terrific performances of Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali, both disappearing in their roles as men from different worlds, one from a violent, desperate world and the other from a confined world where identity is hard to find, with both of them find a common ground through mutual respect and admiration. The film is wholesome without sacrificing the pain and strife that comes with the time period or the racial tension, all built on the dignified roles of Ali and Mortensen.

Final Grade: B+
