Friday 1st March 2019
Two men from different worlds form an unexpected friendship in the incredibly moving film Green Book, released 10th June 2019 on Blu-ray and DVD from Entertainment One.
With exceptional filmmaker lineage, Green Book is directed by Peter Farrelly (There's Something About Mary, Shallow Hal), and stars 2019 Golden Globe® nominee Viggo Mortensen (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Eastern Promises) and 2019 Golden Globe® winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Hidden Figures) alongside Linda Cardellini (Brokeback Mountain, The Founder).
The critically acclaimed Green Book is the winner of three 2019 Golden Globe® awards including Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Mahersala Ali and Best Screenplay and three Oscars including Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role (Mahershala Ali) and Best Original Screenplay.
Academy Award® nominee for his roles in Captain Fantastic and Eastern Promises, Viggo Mortensen, and Academy Award® winner for Moonlight, Mahershala Ali, star in Green Book, a film inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class, and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line.
When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), 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 humour - they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.
