Netflix fans are praising an Oscar-winning film as one of the best movies they’ve ever seen after its release on the streaming platform earlier this month.

Movie lovers were impressed with the film in question, released in 2018 to great critical acclaim.

They expressed their love for a film that, despite winning an Academy Award, was not as well received by audiences as some of its contemporary releases.

The release has an 8.2/10 rating on IMDb and a 91 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The film in question is Green Book, which focuses on the casual friendship between a renowned pianist and his driver/bodyguard.

The film’s synopsis reads: “When Tony Lip, a doorman in an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to take Dr. Don Shirley, a world-famous black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on ‘The Green Book’ to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African Americans.

‘Faced with racism, danger, as well as unexpected humanity and humor, they are forced to put aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

‘The movie [is] inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line.’

At the 2019 Oscars, Green Book beat Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star Is Born to win Best Picture.

Mahershala Ali was also recognized for his portrayal of Dr. Don Shirley, which earned him the Best Supporting Actor award.

After watching it for the first time upon its arrival on Netflix, fans rushed to X, formerly Twitter, to express their love for the film.

One fan wrote: ‘Has anyone else seen the Green Book yet? For me 10/10’.

A second left a glowing review, commenting: “I watched the Green Book on Netflix.” Really good watch.’

Another praised it for its compelling score and posted: ‘I saw the Green Book tonight. “A great movie with a great soundtrack.”

Another user kindly pointed out that it is no longer available on Prime Video, as it was previously available on Netflix.

They said, ‘For anyone who needs to know… that’s everyone. Green Book is on Netflix after leaving Prime. You are welcome!’

A fifth added: “Watching Green Book on Netflix.” Totally entertaining, I must say… Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen are great in it.”
