Green Book (Green Book - Eine besondere Freundschaft)
USA, 2018 | Length: 130min | FSK: 6 | Director: Peter Farrelly Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini

When Tony Lip (Mortensen; »The Lord of the Rings«), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali; »Moonlight«), 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. Part road movie, part social commentary, this truly delightful dramedy - a very solid contender for Best Picture accolades - takes audiences on a surprisingly smooth ride through potentially bumpy subject matter, fueled by Peter Farrelly's (»Dumb and Dumber«, »There's Something about Mary«) deft touch, a sharp screenplay, and two powerhouse performances by Mortensen and Ali.
