The 4k Blu-ray offers a much brighter picture from the Blu-Ray.  The 4k Blu-ray of course, is a lot sharper than the standard Blu-ray.  Overall, this is a nice presentation.

| Audio |

Universal's Dolby Atmos soundtrack delivers a sonic atmosphere along with a thematically enriching music, often that played by Shirley and his fellow musicians in several concert stops.  There are a couple of moments in the film where the audio does make you feel as if you are there.  Audio is also provided in French DTS Digital Surround 5.1 and English DVS 2.0.

| Special Features |
  • Virtuoso Performances: A quick look at the lead actors and the characters they portray.

  • An Unforgettable Friendship: More character details are revealed. The supplement also examines the referencing of historical documents, the role of music in the film, character growth, and more. Tony Lip's son is interviewed in the piece and it also briefly explores his contributions to the film.

  • Going Beyond the Green Book: This piece offers a brief history lesson on the real "Green Book" from which the film takes its title.

| Overall Reaction |

A amazing 4K presentation with a stellar Atmos soundtrack, this Ultra HD release is the one you'll want to own.   The only complaint was the lack of special features for this Oscar movie.   Highly Recommended.  This 3 -time Oscar-winner  is  now available on Blu-ray Disc, 4k Blu-ray and DVD.
