I was listening to a podcast once where the guy being interviewed said that he watched two movies a day. I love watching dramas and movies but sitting down to two movies every single day … yeah maybe I could do it. If you asked me nicely enough. Pass the popcorn please!
Which leads me to the Netflix movie, Green Book starring Viggo Mortensen. Oh-kay! I thought he was cute in Lord of the Rings. Let’s take a look.
Well, the Viggo in this movie is vastly different to LOTR but both being equally wonderful characters.
But enough about the food loving Viggo. I want to talk about Mahershala Ali.
I loved his portrayal of Dr. Don Shirley, a pianist who, in the 1950s hired Frank Vallelonga (Mortensen) to drive him around the southern states of America on a tour with his band, The Don Shirley Trio. But there is so much more to this movie than my simple description!
Real Life – Dr Don Shirley and The Don Shirley Trio
Let’s get on with the reviews and there are a whole slew of them in the links below. Please watch this movie. I know it was released a while back but if you haven’t seen it yet, off you go! I loved it and I’m so embarrassed to say that I did not know it won Best Movie, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay and other awards at the 2019 Oscars.
Thanks for reading!
