Academy Award Winner — Best Film of the Year!

This year’s Oscar winner for Best Film of the Year returns to Railroad Square, where it started just before Thanksgiving! Also an Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actor (Mehershala Ali) and Best Original Screenplay, GREEN BOOK also copped a leading 3 Golden Globes, including Best Picture of the Year, Comedy or Musical. When Tony Lip (Oscar nominee Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Oscar winner Mahershala 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 humor-they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime. “It’s the master class put on by Mortenson and Ali that powers this moving and often hilarious work and gives it mass appeal” —USA Today. PG-13. 130 Min.
