Recent winner of the top prize at Toronto International Film Festival, Green Book is the uplifting true story of an unlikely friendship that transcended race and class.
Set in 1962, Italian-American Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) is hired to chauffeur African-American pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) on a concert tour through the Deep South. Don is aware of the troubles that he might face in different locations due to the colour of his skin and requires someone to act as both driver and bouncer. They must rely on The Green Book, a guide to the few establishments that are safe for African-Americans and embark on a journey that will change both of their lives.
With strong performances from Ali (following his Oscar-winning turn in Moonlight) and Mortensen (A History of Violence), there is also a great chemistry between the leads. Director Peter Farrelly, best known for his crowd-pleasing comedies Dumb and Dumber and There’s Something About Mary, succeeds brilliantly in making the vital subject of racial division in the 1960s America into a smart and charming film.

The conductor of this New Year’s Eve concert is Daniel Barenboim, one of the Berliner Philharmoniker’s oldest friends. He also takes on the role of soloist in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 26 – a work of sparkling beauty and nuanced expression. There are also four famous works by Maurice Ravel, which create an impressive synthesis of elegance and originality. The final highlight is the Boléro, perhaps the most stunning crescendo in music history.
