It's a trailer for a movie I'd never heard of, that's opening for Thanksgiving. I know next to nothing about it, only this trailer. And it looks absolutely wonderful. The movie is Green Book, starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali. It's written by Peter Farrelly, Nick Vallelonga and Brian Currie -- and directed by Peter Farrelly. Making that all the more notable is that Peter Farrelly is one of the two Farrelly Brothers, who made such "stupid comedies" as Dumb and Dumber; There's Something About Mary; Me, Myself and Irene, Kingpin, Shallow Hal and more.
It's inspired by a true story, and I'm sure there will be reviews that refer to it as Driving Mr. Daisy, which seems somewhat apt, but the story seems to take its own left turn down a little-used road. The title comes from the guidebook that would let Black people know where they could eat and sleep, or get gas when traveling through the South in the days before Civil Rights.
I have no idea, of course, how the full movie will be, but I can't wait to see it.
