I was looking for a movie to watch a few weeks back. So I decided I would check out the movie that won the best picture at the 2019 Oscars, “The Green Book.”
The movie was headlined by Viggo Mortensen. I have been impressed with him since the “Lord of the Rings” so I was eager to see his latest film.
His character in “The Green Book” was completely different from his role as Aragorn. He did a great job in this film. At some point, I almost wondered if it was the same actor in both movies.
I don’t want to ruin the plot for you if you haven’t seen the movie. My biggest takeaway from the movie was the power of relationships. It is amazing to see where true friendship can come from.
The two characters in this movie had completely different backgrounds. How they ended up being lifelong friends was touching. It made me think about some of the friendships I currently have and how different diverse they are.
The movie also made me think that I need to be present and aware at all times. I need to proactively look for ways to help those around me.
I once heard the phrase “The Lord must have loved ordinary people because he made so many of us. But every single day in every walk of life, people do extraordinary things.”
That is exactly what happened in the movie “The Green Book.”
