I love this! The Oscar winner for best picture, "Green Book" was shot largely in New Orleans, and nearby locations in southeastern Louisiana, according to The Advocate. It stars Viggo Mortensen, and Mahershala Ali. Mortensen is a native of my birthplace, Watertown, New York. He graduated from St. Lawrence University, as did both of my parents. The film has drawn widespread praise...and criticism. Multiple Oscar winning director Spike Lee was reportedly quite displeased. "Green Book" has won several other awards, including the Toronto International Film Festival’s People’s Choice Award, and the New Orleans Film Festival’s Audience Award. I've seen the trailers, but not the  movie itself. My interest is piqued.
