Really great film, wonderfully acted, could have been cheesy but was so well made and avoided Hollywood/soapy storylines. 4/5
Films most looking forward to in 2019;
Star Wars IX
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Just been to see my first free film - Green Book - I didn't know what to expect and I enjoyed it so much more than I thought I would. Really shocking to see how prejudice was the norm just a short time ago. So we'll acted and laugh out loud funny in so many places. It was lovely to know it was based on a true story too and that the two main characters actually ended up learning from each other. Came out of the cinema smiling and laughing!

Just got back from watching this, and it's honestly a wonderful film. The moments of humour were great, as was the message.

Surprised by the well researched content of this film. The contrast between the two main characters was particularly well played out.
I wonder what proportion of the audience were aware of the deep seated prejudices that existed and still exist in the southern states. I think it should have had a date stamped pre-amble.

I loved the film. highly entertaining. I Saw it at Glasgow Silverburn on 24/1/19. It didn't however live up to the advert (bus T-type ad) clainming a film like no other as it very much followed the theme of Driving Miss Miss Daisy and some of the based on truth element is contested by Shirley's family
