Mahershala Ali Reportedly Apologized To His ‘Green Book’ Character’s Family For Film

Actor Mahershala Ali has reportedly reached out to the family of jazz pianist Don Shirley — the character he portrays in the award-season darling “Green Book” — to apologize for the film, according to the news site Shadow and Act.

In November, Shirley’s nephew Edwin Shirley III and the pianist’s 82-year-old brother, Maurice Shirley, told NPR’s 1A Movie Club that the film is brimming with inaccuracies. Maurice went as far as to describe it as “a symphony of lies” to Shadow and Act.
