“Green Book” (2018)

This is easily the most divisive winner since Crash. Me personally, I really enjoyed this film. It’s a film that’s designed to be a crowd-pleaser. It may be familiar, but it manages to be well executed enough to more than compensate for that. The performances from the both leads are fantastic. The film is surprisingly entertaining, far more than I was expecting for a film like this. Also, under the direction of Peter Farrelly, he manages to actually produce some genuinely funny moments. And the friendship that grows actually feels organic and natural. It might not be one of the year’s very best, but this is a breezy and extremely entertaining watch, that offers just as much poignancy as it needs to.
