This multi-award winning film picked up the Oscar for the best picture. It is based on a true story set during the Civil Rights Movement. It is about the collision of two very different lives. The characters are thrown together when Frank, a bouncer at a nightclub, is hired as the driver for Don, a black classical pianist, on a concert tour in the Deep South. The film is not without its critics notably for what has been termed its ‘white saviour narrative’ Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali however are tremendous as the lead characters with a strong script and great supporting performances. Come and decide for yourselves.
