Continuing our recent tradition, we are closing the Festival with the People’s Choice winner from Toronto.
Green Book is based on a true story set in 1962. Italian-American bouncer, Tony (Viggo Mortensen) is hired to drive renowned, African-American pianist Dr Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali – Moonlight) to a series of concerts across the southern states.
Tony is conflicted. He must reconcile own views on race with his duties as driver and skills as a minder – skills put to effective use as the road trip heads south.
The story that emerges has elements of comedy and high drama and serves as a significant reminder of contemporary bigotry and racial ills.
This is an expertly-acted, perfectly telegraphed message movie that knows the buttons it's pushing, and pushes them all, right on cue. This is not a knock against it, it's a compliment.
