Green Book - A Wonderful Movie
The movie tells the story of a Black piano virtuoso touring the the South in 1962 which his White assistant. The story deals primarily with racism, but it also brings a lot more into it. Green Book deals a lot with the difficulties of fitting in when one is "different".
It is hokey and cliched in part, but it has twists and turns and a depth that is wonderful.
There is both humor and seriousness in good balance. It is a "Hollywood Movie" - but it has a depth and a warmth that few movies have. The music is wonderful! There is a lot more that is tremendous in this movie.
It is a perfect complement to the movie The Hate U Give - helping us White People - move forward on racism in a much less direct, less confrontational way. The audience here was virtually 100% White - good for us - to learn.
Thank You Very Much to Michael C - for highly recommending Green Book! You were oh so right!
