Free Advance Screening : Green Book (2018)

Film
Wednesday, November 7
7 pm
Cost: Free
A free advance screening of Green Book (2018)

USA | 130 min | PG-13 | DCP | Dir. Peter Farrelly

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger as well as unexpected humanity and humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

"A film that's remarkably conventional and shallow in its treatment of racism, but also an undeniable showcase for two great performers." -
Brian Tallerico (RobertEbert.com)

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff, and Union Members and guests.
