This coming Friday night we’ll meet up for our first Movie Night of the club season.  For #ThrowbackThursday, here’s a look back to last year’s movie night to see “Green Book”!

01.02.2019. Review by Elaine Ferguson. The film is loosely based on the friendship between Tony “Lip” Vallelonga (Viggo Mortensen) who is a night club owner/bouncer and Dr Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) a talented black concert pianist.

The film takes place in 1962 when Dr Shirley hires Tony as a chauffeur to drive him on a concert tour through the southern states of American which were at that time still segregated. Before Tony sets off he is handed a small book entitled “The Green Book” which is a travel guide providing helpful information for black travellers. This gives us a clue as to what we can expect from the rest of the movie which is more of a story about the struggles imposed on the blacks in the south rather than a true friendship.

The music and the company made it an enjoyable evening.

For those of you wanting to know more about the meaning behind the Green Book:
