Wednesday 3rd July 2019 – Green Book
Starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali
“Inspired by true friendship”
Green Book stars Mahershala Ali as Dr Don Shirley, an elegant and aristocratically aloof pianist who practises his art while living alone in an exotically furnished apartment high above Carnegie Hall, and Viggo Mortensen as Vallelonga, a temporarily out-of-work nightclub bouncer whose natural habitat is the street, hired as both a driver and tough-guy trouble-shooter to accompany Shirley and his white bandmates on a tour of the Jim Crow American South, still starkly segregated in the unspecified early 1960s setting. (The film takes its title from The Negro Motorist Green Book, designed to help black travellers safely negotiate this hostile territory.)
Winner of 3 Oscars – Best Motion Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Ali) and Best Screenplay
Tickets are £5, which includes a temporary £1 towards the LAFF campaign.
