‘Green Book’ cruises on star power of Mortensen, Ali

“Green Book” can’t avoid “Driving Miss Daisy” comparisons, and probably doesn’t want to, as the film — amid unease about political polarization and racial division — conspicuously strives to be uplifting and bridge building. To the extent it achieves those objectives credit Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali, whose performances bring humanity and dimension to this fact-based road movie, despite the predictable nature of its narrative journey.
