GREEN BOOK - A special friendship (OmU)
Director: Peter Farrelly

The gifted pianist dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) goes in Protected content a concert tour from New York to the southern states. His driver is the Italian-American Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a simple working-class man who earns his living by doing odd jobs and as a bouncer. The contrast between the two could not be greater. Nevertheless, a close friendship develops. Together they experience a time marked by true humanity, but also violence and racial segregation. So they have to plan their trip to the "Negro Motorist Green Book", a guide for African American motorists, which lists the few accommodations and restaurants that also serve black guests.

GREEN BOOK - A SPECIAL FRIENDSHIP portrays the comically funny and deeply moving journey of the two different men traveling together through ups and downs, creating a wonderful friendship. Director Peter Farrelly ("Crazy for Mary", "Flayed After 7 Days") paints an authentic picture of an impressive journey through troubled times in his expressive, real-life feel-good movie, which was nominated for 5 Golden Globes.
