Why are so many ppl mad at Vallelonga's son for making a feel good movie from his father's point of view. OF COURSE the film is gonna be from the driver's point of view, his SON produced it. It would have been foolishness for the son to try and
get into the head of a genius musician, highly educated, gay Black man like Shirely. Valalonga's son couldn't know a thing in depth about what it was like for Shirley. I enjoyed this film a lot for what it was. I didn't take it as a straight documentary and I didn't think it
denigrated or lionized Dr. Shirley. It was just a feel good movie about an unlikely friendship where the people were separated by class and race. If people wanna be mad let them be mad at the system that makes it ten times more likely that Valalonga, a white man, would get
access to capital to make a film from his father's point of view even though his father was just the driver, than it would be likely that the Black family of Dr. Shirley would get financing to make a movie from Dr. Shireley's point of view even though Dr. Shirley was a world
class classical pianist. Now that #GreenBook won I hope financiers back a movie about a gay Black pianist prodigy getting classically trained in Russia at N elite music academy. I would LOVE to see Dr. Shirely's back story.
