GREEN BOOK (12) – 26 OCTOBER

FILM EVENING AT PAUNTLEY VILLAGE HALL. . 7.00 p.m. for 7.30 p.m.  This award-winning film is inspired by a true story of a trip across the south of the USA in the 1960s, in the era of segregation.  When Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a world-class black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans.  Confronted with racism and danger – as well as unexpected humanity and humour – they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.
