Actor Viggo Mortensen says biggest strength of his latest-feature Green-Book is that it is not preachy. In an-interview with Collider, 60-year-old actor said film's story is not limited in terms of relatability, which he believes is a-great-thing. "What's great about the movie I think and this only matters if the movie's good. Let's face it, if it's entertaining and you enjoy yourself," Mortensen said.
