  • The Opposing Characters of Peter Farrelly’s Films
  • by HWANG Hee-yun /  Feb 26, 2019
  • Characters living worlds apart

    Green Book, about an intellectual black pianist and an unrefined white driver on a concert tour in the American Deep South in the heat of the segregation in the 1960s, has been warmly welcomed by the Korean audience, having scored 305,500 admissions so far. It has also won a host of accolades, with a Best Film award from the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures, and Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture in Musical or Comedy, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor. This serious work touching on the topic of racial discrimination comes from Peter FARRELLY, a director who was until recently best known for his early-2000s comedies and their heavy use of toilet humor. He and Bobby FARRELLY were once called the most powerful brothers in Hollywood, but have since been pursuing solo directing careers. Directed by Peter alone, Green Book presents several comic scenes that are particularly witty. What has not changed is that his latest film once again features conflicting characters. Be they Lloyd and Harry in Dumb and Dumber who display an extreme level of stupidity, an innocent Amish and bowling gambler Roy who tries to pass as a coach in Kingpin, the irresistible Mary and her foolish male fans in There’s Something About Mary, a substantial woman and a man blinded by love in Shallow Hal, conjoined twin brothers who never give up on love nor their dreams in Stuck on You, or a big fan of the Boston Red Sox and the woman who falls in love with him in Fever Pitch, all the characters appearing in FARRELLY’s movies are lovely troublemakers who are impossible to hate.
