The critically acclaimed and highly-anticipated GREEN BOOK is confirmed for release at South African cinemas on 15 February 2019.
Cultures clash when a working-class Italian-American from the Bronx becomes the driver for a classically trained pianist on a concert tour of the American South in GREEN BOOK.
A warm, funny and surprising look at a real-life friendship, GREEN BOOK is directed by Peter Farrelly, and stars Oscar®-nominee Viggo Mortensen and Oscar®-winner Mahershala Ali.
GREEN BOOK is a warm-hearted and often hilarious road movie about two very different, strong-willed men who break through barriers of race, class and education to form a deep and enduring bond – on the journey of a lifetime. Transcending initial assumptions and stereotypes, the pair’s unlikely alliance demonstrates the life-changing power of tolerance and cross-cultural understanding – two steadfast values that continue to resonate today.
After GREEN BOOK won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival, it went on to win audience awards at three additional film festivals in the U.S. (Middleburg, Mill Valley and Boston).
Apart from being a definite favourite amongst movie audiences, there are also strong indicators that it will receive significant attention during the upcoming awards season – with Oscar- and Golden Globe-nominations being suggested by various critics.
