Review: Green Book

review-greenbook

Anchored by two terrific performances from Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali, Green Book excels as both a fun buddy road movie and an examination on racial divides that stretches from its 1960’s setting to today. Mortensen displays an incredible knack for comic timing we never knew he had while Ali continues his streak of fascinating and memorable roles. Directed by one half of the crude-comedy Farrelly Brothers duo, Peter Farrelly impresses with his ability to balance both comedy and drama to achieve a piece that is endlessly entertaining and which hits all the right notes along the way. It’s the feel-good movie of the year. Grade: A.
