Green Book tells the true story of the unlikely friendship of Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, who takes on a job as a chauffeur for Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a world class African-American classical pianist. The pair embark on a two-month concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, relying on The Green Book to guide them to the few establishments that are safe for African-Americans to frequent. In the racially charged deep south they are confronted with bigotry, hypocrisy, humanity and humour.
A heart warming, emotional journey about two very different men who overcome their differences and pride to see past the things that divide them and change both their lives.
