Based on a true story, Green Book (2018) is an American biographical comedy-drama film directed by two-time Golden Globe Award-winning Peter Farrelly, who is well-renowned for his strong affinity for the comedy genre. Green Book's title was derived from a travel guide officially called The Negro Motorist Green Book. Originating from Victor Hugo Green, the book compiles all business establishments that were considered safe spaces for African-American patrons during the segregation epoch in U.S. history, a time characterized by openly unjust laws that catered to the supremacy of White Americans. There may have been several films that touched on sociopolitical issues, but Green Book is definitely one for the books. However, Green Book's supreme glory does not singularly hinge on the wonders that were brought to the table by Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen. Nor does it solely rely on Peter Farrelly's thorough directorial supervision that gave life to a true story. Green Book's handling of an institutionalized issue that has left some residue in modern times is its real focal strength, which is inarguably guided and well-crafted despite bearing so much gravitas.
