Green Book (out Jan 24) is set in 1962 and chronicles the (supposedly) true story of a renowned black pianist and the friendship he forges with his white driver/bodyguard as they go on a road trip through Southern America. It's predictable but it's still a warm-hearted crowd pleaser that achieves its mission thanks to the two stellar performances from Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen. Grade: B+.
