5 Oscar Nominations including Best Picture, Actor, Supporting Actor!
GREEN BOOK, the odds-on Oscar winner favorite at this point, returns to Railroad Square just in time for its multiple Oscar nominations! It just won the Producers Guild Best Film of the Year award, a harbinger of the eventual Oscar winner 20 of the past 29 years, and also copped a leading 3 Golden Globes, including Best Picture of the Year, Comedy or Musical. It has, at the moment, won 39 International awards. 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.
