    Terrific movie. But it's only a tiny window into what minorities have endured in this country. In the time setting of this movie, a true story, the depiction of the treatment blacks suffered at that time wasn't very far removed from slavery itself. Horrible, just horrible, and disgraceful. And it's not much better now. Will mankind ever learn? Today most kids are going to school with kids of numerous other races. There they play at recess; they make friends; they do school projects; they play sports, all without consideration of ethnicity or religion, or anything else. Babies come into this world free of animosity toward other people who aren't exactly like them, or for any reason, yet there are still parents teaching children to hate. If parents themselves didn't discriminate and hate people who are different from them, children wouldn't hate. If parents wouldn't turn away from people who have diffefrent skin color, or who speak a different language, or who dress differently, children wouldn't grow to turn away. And no matter what any individual "thinks" about humankind, there's something he should "know" about mankind. WE ARE ALL THE SAME.

    GREEN BOOK - excellent! True story. Afraid it will be taken down soon due to too poor a showing at the box office - so don't delay! Time frame/location: Early 60's in America's deep south. Viggo Mortensen (who must have taken steroids for this role so he could appear the part, as was almost unrecognizable) plays the equivalent of "Driving Miss Daisy" only he is a white tough guy from NYC who works for a high class night club that (when his hotel employer closes down for 2 months renovations) reluctantly takes on a 2-month assignment to be the driver for a world class pianist (who is black, and his 2 cello accompanists, who are white) while he does a whirlwind tour of America's deep south who perceive themselves as 'upper white crust' establishments, but who aren't really interested in classical music, so the pianist accommodates their low brow music instead, all while being refused either dining in these establishments where he is playing, or being allowed to be a guest. The pianist doesn't belong in either world - black or white due to his upbringing; the film shows he needs to come down off his pedestal a little, and his (soon to be) street-savvy protector learns to develop DIGNITY/INTEGRITY during their sojourn together. They learn about each other's attributes and faults, then come to appreciate each other for the TRUTH of their characters throughout the tour, little by little as the nuances in this film are SO wonderful. The movie's title is a green (a paperback) book required for blacks who had to travel interstate, and the green book told them of locations of motels that would accommodate black people in these states. Still - being the deep south, the viewer knows it won't be easy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Pics at the end show each of the characters, both still alive, and both still friends.

    A very good movie that everyone should see. A good true story (well at least by Hollywood standards), well told with good casting that reminds us of the racial discrimination, injustice and hate in our past incurred by African Americans...... that needs to end......

    We need to be reminded of how it was in the south and how it still is to some degree. A wonderful film!
