Acting superstars Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali are ready to go on one crazy trip in a true life story with some serious heart to it in Green Book.
Check out the astounding new trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Based on an extraordinary true story, when New York bouncer and all-around tough guy Tony Lip (Mortensen) takes a job as a chauffeur to the eloquent and cultured Jamaican pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Ali) the two men are in for the trip of their lives which will change each of them in the most unexpected of ways.
Green Book looks like an extraordinarily tale of friendship in the most unexpected of places and whats more it’s completely true. Director Peter Farrelly trades his usual comedy routines which include the cult classic films Dumb and Dumber and There’s Something About Mary and instead moves for pure heart with this incredibly deep film.
In terms of acting talent you can’t find much better than Mortensen and Ali and these two professionals have a great chemistry that flows off of one another and enriches the others performances.
With a string focus on friendship and a journey of two strangers through America’s Deep South in a turbulent time period I’m sensing that Green Book will be a serious contender come awards season.
Get ready for something very special when Green Book arrives in cinemas.
