  • Portishead Films showcases ‘Green Book’

    Portishead Film will be screening ‘Green Book,’ a road movie which is set in America in the early sixties and won the Oscar for Best Picture in 2019.

    When Tony Lip, a bouncer from an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley, 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 which are safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism and danger, as well as unexpected humanity and humour, they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.  It’s essentially about two racially diverse men who get to know each other and are thus saved from their own shortcomings.

    Moving and poignant, funny and delightful, Green Book offers a story about belonging and working out who you are, that will warm the hardest of hearts.

    Green Book will be screened on Friday 6th December at the Jubilee Hall, Slade Road, Portishead.  The film starts at 8.00pm (with refreshments available from 7.30) and tickets cost £5.00.  All are most welcome.

Set against the background of the 1950s Cold War, it’s the tale of a couple separated by politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate – an impossible love story in impossible times.
