And now they're outside of the actual say they're living in a little suburb outside of San Francisco. All right. Here's another story. Mock insisted that we do didn't wanna do. But it's a chicks on the right headline free. You just read you the headline. The headline will tell us. It's such a twenty one thousand nine story totally quote this from the Daily Mail. I thought I was being funny. Green book director Peter Farrelly apologizes for flashing his genitals at people, including Cameron Diaz on film sets. He could do that years ago. Right. It probably was funny like what ten fifteen years ago that what we're talking about. I guess how many years ago? Are we talking about was it like last year? This would have been like during there's something about Mary. Okay. So that was about ten years ago. Ten fifteen years. Myself at least. Okay. So maybe it was funny. It was probably hilarious. And she probably thought was funny. She seems cool. Yeah. I mean, she seems like she seems like she's kind of. She's like whatever she probably like did it like a little little thing with their fingers where she needed. Because really small. Yeah. Probably made fun of him a little bit. And she probably went on with their day. Why is he bring does it say why he's bringing this up quick? Let me I you said something that's interesting preemptive. He doesn't wanna get sued. Really see you think he's just like, hey, FYI in case anybody was planning on saying this. And I'm sorry. In case anybody was trying to like, you know, Sumi or make me some sort of a bad guy. I'm I did this and I'm apologizing in advance. Wow. That's where we are. Maybe guys will start doing this. This is like the new wave. Well, guys would be like, hey, remember that time when I was fourteen and I tried to grab your, but I'm really sorry about that. We backpedal for a second just for what are you guys refer to it as unraveling untangle. Unraveling impact as you said, she seems like she spun is that was that not the right phrase. Yes, she seems like she'd be down. She seemed like she'd be like down earth and kind of fun. And like, you know, like, whatever she has a good sense of humor. Will you to shrews also seem like you'd be down and fun and not once have I ever been tempted to wit, my genitals out and go. Tempted? Don't do that in the workplace do it in the workplace. You don't we'll maybe film sets are different. It's a different culture. And it's feels different. I will tell you like, let's let's put it this way like this environment. A radio environment is much different than like the environment. I was at lily, you know, like we things are said here and done here. You had to ask to go to the bathroom there. I didn't really ask to go to the bathroom. But I did feel like it was a little more Shashank. I felt like I had I had to ask you like I wasn't allowed to use white out. You know what? I mean. There were rules. You know, because it's an FDA regulated. It's an environment where everything is regulated. And it's very strict rules of doing things, you know. So when I came to radio and everybody was very polite, and it's very it's very corporate over there. It's very very corporate. And everybody's so nice and on their best behavior. You know? And so when I came over here, I was I think I remember asking permission to take a picture. Yeah. That's you our to our program director. I was like am I allowed to take a picture of? So. And so and he was like he looked at me. Like, I was crazy. I mean, he looked at me. Like, I like there's something wrong with you. You have three heads. And then you walked further down the hallway and hurt expletives coming out of our executive producers often. Yeah. Come to find out is a daily basically happens at noon every day. It's just the radio is different. So what I'm saying is like on movie sets and probably in media. It's probably a different kind of environment and they're used to tomfoolery and whatnot. By the way, this did surface because the cut publish excerpts. And this is how much society's changed of nineteen ninety eight Newsweek story in which fairly and his brother Bobby fairly who he did films with like to use ruses to get people. Look at his penis. Okay. Listen, it's not appropriate. I'm not saying that it's appropriate. I'm just saying that somebody likes like bragging about it in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. I'm saying that if he did that Cameron Diaz she probably was like, you know, what you're a jerk. Like, just stop it go away, and she probably just was like, whatever. But I'm not going to Sue Wright. And I'm not gonna complain about it. Yeah. I mean like crown last. Like gotten so uptight while they're all getting naked. Yeah. She doesn't understand this this crazy. It's just it's just so much dissonance between what's actually being presented to us in the media. And how people are reacting or pretending react outrage. He's probably just said, you're an idiot go away and then just went on with their day because she's just sort of like a down to earth fun check. So.

"I do see signs of a little bit of a brewing foot race between a star is born and green book. I think there are some early signs. Of even some negative campaigning going on. So, you know, I think that green book is is serious really could win best picture, and I think Roma's in there. But I still am just struggling to see like where the traction is for. I think Cuaron will win director. And I feel like it's possible. I would not be surprised put it this way. If the green book argument was of course, Koran should win director. But this is the movie that really like does what an Oscar movie does. It's it it hits you in the heart. You know? And it's like a crowd pleaser, and Roma has such a historical precedent to kind of beat in that like, no Spanish language, film has ever been nominated for best picture. He said, it'll probably it'll probably do that. So going to say like, it'll win foreign don't worry. Right. Hit the you know, I mean. Yeah. I think that's already any interest of spreading realizing they'll sort of. Yeah. Now, that's true. And I think that, you know, yet green books presence at the bath does which like it's telling, you know, whether or not you think it's telling it. Well, it's telling a particularly American story. And yet really resonated with the British Academy. So I'm going to say one more thing, you know, Cameron Collins wrote, I think very sort of incisive piece about green book that crystallized some like a lot of the criticism. And then the folks that shadow and act talk to the family of of Dr Shirley, and and that was all there. Peter Farrelly also talked to to are Nicole Sperling and made his case and didn't shy away from it. You know? So I think it's interesting. I mean, I think they they have not shied away from kind of like pushing back on that. And and at least saying like, hey, we can agree about tactics. Or or like what, you know, whether this is a one hundred percent non-problematic or not, but like my heart's in the right place. I'm trying to make a movie that's about reconciliation. So I think that that will probably be meaningful to you know, to to some of the people who are a little bit on on edge being like is it okay to vote for this? I think that that that may be helpful for that cost and him talking to Cole was a bit more measured than his sort of blustery speech at the Golden Globes. You know? Well, the streets Bogo glows was was the problem. I think so I think that did not sit well with a lot of just also because it was just too chaotic. But he's he's not gonna win director. So will get not like, and I love I I was unaware of the historical issues, particularly to Shirley's life. When I saw the movie in Toronto. When I was like well for what it is. It's really, you know, it's good. It's GL acted I engaged. But like was the direction something that? I really was like, yes. I mean, maybe that's the thing. That's the direction. You don't really see, you know. It's it's tightly built in a way that you don't notice all the work behind it versus something..

It was really surprising to see it win the big award at the end of the night. I've been putting off watching green book because I feared it would be this sort of placid uplift, you know, kind of very unchanging kind of kind of movie, and that speech by director, Peter Farrelly, which is just filled with all these platitudes about how we all need to find common ground. We need to do a lot more than that. That that didn't reassure me at all. Yeah. All we have to do is talk and to not judge people by their differences. But look for what we have in common.

Movie Review: “Green Book”

"Which I said, let's see I'm looking up here. I said I watched green book, and it was about a white racist who teaches a black guy how to be more black and how we'd all be better off racists in the victims of racism, just got along. Better your enjoyment of the film will likely depend on your receptiveness that message. And I literally thought I think I'm only my leagues agitating. When I literally thought I was just stating the text of the film like that. That is what I thought the movie was trying to. Say a lot of people were like criticizing me being like, you know. That's super harsh. Dave. And I'm like that is what the movie is like it's Viggo Mortensen plays a racist. There. Mercia Lally plays a black pianist going through Jim crow, south touring and and being subject to racism and the to kind of teach each other. Better understanding if humanity, and I think Mark Harris did a great job of running down like what's wrong with movies like green book, which they feel like they are out of I dunno late eighties early nineties. Right. This kind of by this. This type driving. Exactly, right. The like driving miss daisy. Both sides have something to contribute to the conversation. Like, oh, like like, look at how much we all have to learn from each other. You know, like. I'm sure I can imagine somebody who was big in Hollywood in that period. Looks at this way. Now now, the white guys driving him that's the movie, I know. And so it's not I mean, it's certainly I can understand why people find it to be an offensive film. And in fact, the the relatives of Dr Don Shirley have since come out and publicly denounced the movie, they have said like this movie contained they called it. A symphony of lies is what they said face like everything about the movie is that it is a gross misrepresentation of their relationship because like a big part of the movies about Dr Don, Shirley, the pianist and how he's like so disconnected with his family. And and he doesn't like he feels like a like an outsider to his own race. And it's it's Viggo Mortensen 's mildly racist character that helps them to reconnect with his like, it's all this stuff and his. The real life on Shirley families like well that never happened. None of that was true. But at least it was a symphony of lives. That's correct. The poster will say a symphony. No, I don't I don't know if they're gonna use that poco, Jeff. But in any case, I mean, yeah, it's so it's not even really that accurate and the story as it just it just feels like it's from a different era. Feels like we don't really need this kind of story anymore. We have other choices today about you know, how we've you these types. I mean. Yeah. There's there's a more diverse slate of filmmakers behind the camera. These days that can tell stories like this and from a different and more interesting perspective. So poignant views like, you know, more nuance point of us. I will say when I first saw the trailer for this. And I was like oh, my Herschel eilly. That's so that's interesting. This looks cool Vigo Mortenson and then Peter Farrelly. And I remember we talked about project greenlight a couple years ago. I will never forget how Peter fairly treated producer EFI Brown. And like, you know, she's a really well known and very prolific. Black producer. Yeah. And she's made a lot of stuff and Peter fairly would not show her any any instance of like respect or like there's just like a like subtle racism going on there.

"That was the thing that really appealed to me. It's it's a serious movie. It's although it has last, but what's funny is is is it seems pretty restrained. Did you have to like restrain yourself from doing the things you normally do in a movie set? This is also an odd couple. Type store you got contra Panos with three doctorates and sixth grade educated. You know, bouncer. And so there's tons of laughs in there that I train of avoided, but a lot of them come through. There's just natural laughs in there. But I didn't go Forgacs actually brings us back to Andy Griffith, which was very saying mom was no jokes. Nanny group has never had jokes. The humor had to come from the characters. And that's what I tried to do in this movie. I wanted any laugh to come from the characters, and that's what we tried to do. I gotta ask you one. Last question about your comedies, though. 'cause you're films are famous for like going pretty far. Sometimes I'm thinking of like the hair gel gagging about Mary. Did you and your brother ever come up with something? And you were like, no that's too far. Oh, yeah. Oh. I say not knowing what your standards are that this is public radio. Can you tell us about one? I you know, what I know. I can't. Well, Peter Farrelly. We are delighted to talk to you. We've asked you here to play a game. We're calling. There's something about berry. So. As we've discussed you made. There's something about Mary. So we're gonna ask you three questions about Deary answer to these three questions correctly. You want our prize one of our listeners, the voice of anyone they like from our show on their voicemail Bill who was Peter Farrelly playing for Ray L Cooper of San Francisco, California. All right here, we go. First question Americans feel pretty strongly about dairy. In fact, seven percent of Americans believe what a that. If you drink only milk every day, your bones will become unbreakable be that chocolate milk comes from Brown cows or see that cheese is poop from very special cows. Wow. I, you know, I I'm tempted to go with be just because you know, it's America. I'll go with B. All right. You are right. Seven percent of Americans think. Talking. From Brown talk with labor. Next question was a little bit surprising. But one of modern history's greatest lovers of dairy products was Fidel Castro.

"Looking into your career as a very successful film director, usually with your brother, and you did not have that classic sort of film school kind of background, right? No, counting major in college. Providence college four years, accounting, major graduate the two point zero. And then after that. So did you didn't you whenever you? I talked to like filmmakers are like. Oh, yeah. It was like making videos and the in the fourth grade and all I was constantly going to the movies. You were one of those guys. No, no. We really didn't. We didn't have a movie theater in our town except for a couple of years in high school. There was one. But we what we did love is television. And we, you know, I'm more influenced by TV specifically, probably the Andy Griffith show more than anything else. That's minute. You are. All right. Let's go over some of your movies again. So there there's something about Mary and dumb and dumber and dumber number two and kingpin. And you telling me that the guys who made those movies were inspired by the Andy Griffith. Show. Yeah. I mean, what we try to do is we, you know, obviously, try to make you laugh, but we also want to make you feel some and if you watch the group Griffith show every episode you're gonna laugh, but you don't you're gonna feel a little something and that was unusual for TV show. You normally didn't feel much. Wow. I guess I mean, I've noticed that about your movies that they're that. Despite some of the gross out humor. They're very sweet at heart. Peter you act like you've never seen Barney fife before he's guys whole air. Yeah. I've seen Barney fife. I don't remember the episode where he got his junk caught in zipper though. You know, what the caring part is Andy Griffith. That was a white man you could trust, you know, that, you know, for my for my grandmom and IT, you know, in those days, they entrust white people, but Andy Griffith. If you want to his town, he wouldn't jerk your around. He will leave the town. But yeah. So wait a minute. So Peter, I mean, one of the things that amazes me is I know so many people who did everything they could to break into Hollywood. And they never managed. How did you get in there? How did you sort of start your career? Well, you, you know, it was it was very took me nine years to get a movie made. But you know, I took the baby steps first of all I went off wrote like three hundred fifty pages by myself, you know, for about six months. Eight months that I went into luckily got into grad school UMass Amherst for creative writing and then I transferred to Columbia University for creative writing. And there I met somebody else. And then you know, we wrote a screenplay centered out and boom boom nine years later. We finally got dumb and dumber. I gotta tell you. You know, we had never directed anything before, you know, video commercial nothing student film. So we're figuring it out on the set. We were kind of like, you know, we I'm very honest with everybody the crew saying, yeah, we don't know what we're doing help us out. I knew I knew the script that I wanted. But I know anything about lenses cameras lighting. Any of that stuff? Let me ask you about your latest movie green book, which is out. Now, it is you've made a lot of movies since dumb and dumber. But I it is a departure for you. Right. From you usually new big departure. Yes. So this is a movie, well, you can describe it. I don't want to do that for you. Yeah. It's it's a true story. Nineteen sixty two black concert pianist named Don Shirley, his record company was sending them on a tour of the deep south. He was nervous about going. So he went down to COPA Cabana nightclub in New York and hired the toughest bouncer and Italian American guy with a sixth grade education who was racist himself to drive him because he needed the muscle and somehow after being on the road for two months together, these guys became life lifelong, friends, and it was that part..

"Are you ready to play? I am so ready. All right. Your I quote is from the president of the United States. He is lying and he's trying to get a reduced sentence for things that have nothing to do with me. The president said that who was lying when he admitted to lying. Cohen Michael Collins. The president's former personal lawyer pled guilty in federal court part of an agreement with special prosecutor Robert Miller that happened right after a bunch of presidential tweets again calling Muller's investigation a quote witch hunt. And if it is man where are all these witches coming from he's gotten convictions or please. From almost a dozen white collar criminals does Hogwarts run a business school. That's the whole thing with this guy when he keeps saying talking about which he really disrespects when they really which. Yeah. You know, like in the good old Salem days that was some quality which you got results. Yeah. People actually had consequences. You're saying we should make make witch hunts. Great again. Well, not so calling Cohen says he admitted that he lied to congress and to investigators about the Trump organizations contact with Russia during the camp. No, wait. I'm sorry. According to the court papers, it wasn't Trump. But quote, individual one. Weird legal reasons, that's what they call Trump individual one individual one who was not named was a candidate for president in two thousand sixteen and lived in a gold tower on Fifth Avenue, you know, you can see the sign individual one tower. We are you guys able to follow this. There are some people who think this is like the beginning of the end. And then there are some people are like no there've been so many convictions and guilty pleas isn't going to make any difference whatsoever. It's almost too overwhelming. I get the same feel like all of it's coming down. And just like when they had article came out about all the financial dealings with the Trump family had it was so much information. And everyone's just looked at it. Like, it was a Stephen Hawking's book like died on again. Yeah. But he's got to be really happy about being individual number one. I mean as much as it's all bad news like that's right, number one. All right. You're next quote is about a scientific breakthrough. That was in the news this week. Dr Frankenstein said what could possibly go wrong that was a comment on a claim from a scientist in China? He says he has created the first designer what genetically modified human being your, right? It's. It's. Chinese geneticists says he successfully altered the genome of two baby girls to make them H I, V resistant, not to mention waterproof, shrink proof and dishwasher safe. And I know a lot of parents of newborns are like, really. That would be awesome. Stick him in there. You turn it on. You got sixty minutes of peace. They come out clean anyway. Now if he did this. It would be the first time anybody's admitted to actually changing a human's DNA on purpose which would be shocking, but also disappointing because if you're gonna do it do it. I mean, give the baby girls a pair of wings or like laser is retractable claws. I mean, however, healthy these might end up. They're going to be the most boring X men ever. How about a baby that doesn't poop? That would be great. But it just imagining the baby's growing sense in dismay. Davy? Yeah, it's face. But just be like the human embodiment of gas. I know swelling gently terrible individual number one. Yeah. I don't know. That's I would want maybe a Kashmir or swayed baby. Can't go in the rain well for the treatment on it a baby that if you can make this cry sound like a babbling brook. You know? Can you do can you modify us now? No, you can't the problem cited you. Yeah. Yeah. I got a patch back hair. I'm interested. You got to be a baby. I can't be born yet you have to. I don't know if you don't. I don't know is it is it he legal to do this. Yes. It is high worth very China. China. All right. Your last quote, Ben. You have been your last quote is a tweet reacting to group of scientists who were seen in wild celebration this week my office is like that. But I bring in Donut. These scientists were not celebrating donuts. They're celebrating. What lending the probe on Mars was going to drill down until about the March? Quakes you are so good..

"Well, I wrap this up here. I think what you've just said is an experience we've all had with the film. I think there's a cathartic emotional release in watching this film. You have a very particular voice. It's it's it's extraordinarily competent storyteller. Wonderful director. I- tremendous gift to balance, you know, all the different of comedy and drama, but I really do feel. This is the film that we needed to have. And I think the reaction that you got to Toronto. And you got here today. I think you're gonna I think it's going to be repeated. I think you've done something really exceptional. And I think you made it look easy. I think it's very very difficult to do something like this to get into a mass psyche the way this does and you do it time. And again, I think you have a gift for it. It's very very difficult to do what you do. And I just wish you the absolute best with this film, because I think it's a wonderful film and everybody should really try and get in stank tonight before thank you very much. I want to say before I go a couple of things first of all I wanna thank Dan Gilroy for doing this. This is an honor to be in the room with him. Night crawler, by the way is one of my favorite movies. The last decade, honestly, top three that I've seen grind at the end of it. They were so uplifted. I watched that movie. I'm telling you, I watched that movie over and over. But I also wanna thank all of you for being here because you know, normally my movies, you have a movie premiere it's over, you know. That's it you go on you never have this experience. Again, certainly, no QNA's. You know, I think the closest we we're at like knights of Columbus in Rhode Island where I'm from. And my buddy this true story. My buddy raised his hand. It was dumb and dumber. And he goes pita. He goes, hey, did think thumb people are going to be offended by this? I don't know. I don't think people identify as as as dumb. That's not their identity. Good. What about Tommy? Okay, whatever. But to be here to get the, you know, talk to you guys. I it just means the world to me. I'm very grateful for all. Thank you.

"You know, we kinda mixed it up, and we had a little green screen. We did a little of the snowstorm green screen, but the actual snowstorm that was just one of those crazy blessings it had its does. Apparently where we were in about every three years, you get some snow, but every twenty five years it sticks. The day were supposed to be shooting or the day before we're already painting down the trees with you know, the white stuff. And also it starts to snow. We got like four inches of snow, and we just went right into it and shot at so we were blessed with that. It was unbelievable thing. First time the crew was like, we gotta go home snow. No, this we wait a quarter century would do we drive drive your home. Don't worry, you know, people were terrified. But. But we got lucky and and so most of the snow is real snow and with the couple of green screen things. So what I'm curious director? What camera were you using do? You know, the camera was a Alexa. Alexa is Eli. And you've done film before most of your films before worshiped on film was the first digital had you done digital done digital before. But mostly it was shot on film until my last couple movies were digital. And I realized I fought I do film. And then I realized it's I couldn't tell the difference. I actually wanted film on this one because of the period, and for some reason, I thought it had to be film, and they took me in and they showed me film and digital native Pete. Which is which is like, okay. We'll just do digital. Couldn't tell sets up the studio, and they don't wanna pay they still you you tell the difference. When you can't honestly, I mean, if you pointed it out. Oh, yeah. Okay. I could see it. But it was so hard to tell and it was so much easier. We only had seven weeks film slower, and you gotta change reels. And a lot a lot of other reasons to use digital and it just look great. So you shot it when how like how far back where we just finished in. February. We started last. December. And and then we broke for Christmas. And then we came back, and we did January in some into February. And but it it it..

"You don't know what to do next getting a car for four or five days by yourself and don't be on the phone the whole time and don't constantly be listening to music, I do here and there but just getting your own head for four five days shocking. The clarity you get. And that's what I do whenever I'm a little confused about either a project or anything in my life. So I do love that. And I'm never happier than when I'm on the road. It's just like I feel that Jack Kerouac Americana half openness like you stop at a gas station on you strike up conversations with total strangers. And it's it's something I love, so I guess that's where comes from. So in terms of the road movie dynamic and another thing I wanna talk about which is your brilliant mix of drama and comedy. I think you have like a cap s quality. I really do. I think I think Peter's like adopted taken the mantle of Frank Capra who what betterment could you take because you know, what I love about this movie, and it why think it's so right? He was hoping the movie has hoped. Yeah. It is it is what drew me to the movie because I heard this movie just in passing from a friend of mine. I heard the story. Brian Hayes curry who is one of the writers would Nick Val along myself, but I bumped into Bryan who's an actor. So what are you doing? I'm writing screenplays. So what is it? He says chew story. This black concert pianist, Don Shirley in nineteen sixty two had to go on a trip through the south. And he was afraid. So we hired the toughest bouncer in New York City Italian guy, sixth grade education who was racist himself, and they went on the trip and somehow at the end of it, they became friends. All right. It's like what he is. What he said, they became friends. I said the racist and concert pianist, he said, yeah. That hooked me if they had not become friends, if they had ended up enemies or even worse. I don't think I would have made this movie the thing that got me was the hopefulness of it. Because I'm hopeful, I'm hopeful guy. I there's so much negativity in the world, but I do believe that there's goodness to and I and I like pushing that out there so movies like this process. It took years to get off the ground. So I'm assuming it did. Right. So so here you are. Now, you're making it a couple years ago, and suddenly our world changes in many ways, did you start to feel it was becoming more relevant anymore while you're doing it because it really is a relevant film. Even though the movie happens for years, I feel like we're going through today's America and the sense of how divided we are. We're very divided country is very divided film. And yet I felt like you taking us on a tour of something that hadn't changed. I don't mean. Like, the details, just our differences, and our despair. So did you feel as we as as you got closer to where we are? Now that you felt that. The prison. We were looking at. We'd be different. I I didn't make it as any kind of message movie..

"So I have green book. Okay. Okay. We're all in agreement in Roma are kind of the top two contenders in this category. As they are for best picture. I would imagine green book. I just think it's super well written it balances emotion and drama and tricky themes of race and sexuality with a really good sense of humor, which is what we've come to expect from Peter fairly. I just think he he did he did he like the script? I know the main character son is also. Sun. Road with his partner, and they brought in Peter Farrelly. And that's how it worked right? The thing about this movie is that when you think of Peter Farrelly, you think Peter and Bobby you think of the raunchy like something about Mary, dumb and dumber shuttle how those kinds of films and separating from best director for best original screenplay. This was a film that was was exceptionally. Well, there's a lot of greens dialogue. It is a great screenplay has heart and humor Selassie realized classic structure to its structure of this film that starts with the screenplay of this movie is how refreshingly old fashioned and straightforward and hell elegant it is. And by the way, it is also. It is a Christmas movie. It's an old fashioned crowd-pleaser. It sure is. And it's refreshing with kind of crowd-pleaser that's kind of what I was hinting at earlier in the episode that this is the ultimate crowd-pleaser. I think it's going to play very well for anybody who is voting in the academy. It's gonna play well for the masses when it hits theaters this is the kind of movie that probably will be heading towards as cinema score, which usually is a sign of long legs at the box office. So you will just have everybody talking about it. But I think this is the best kind of crowd-pleaser because using that subject matter and making it it's so enjoyable uplifting. Heartwarming to watch all those messages, and all of those ideas, and all that, positively that this movie has that's what makes someone carry it with them. Well, after they see the movie and probably go back for repeat viewings, probably wanna share that. With more people around them in. This is the kind of movie that I hoped as reaches the widest possible viewership. Now, here's the thing about green book. It is a feel-good crap police all the way, and it is it works on so many levels because it touches on this beautiful friendship between Figo Martin's character Herschel ALI'S character it a Christmas movie. I think it's going to be an instant classic on on those lists and instant classic bar. None. Because of just how how refreshingly oldfashioned it is really don't make studio movies like this any more. But it does touch on sexuality, and it does touch on racism in a way that we see sometimes when we look at the past with things we see things more clearly in the present. I think green book is one movie that does that. And I think the other film that really does that this year a movie that has taken on much more residents because it is also very very layered is black klansman. Now, we talked about black klansman last week or last time when we were talking about best adapted screenplay, but right here in collider in. Our studio in collider. We had the honor that joy, the thrill of Adam driver in studio in our studios. Thanks to this of acing producer host like like, I am not worthy Perry.
