A working-class Italian-American bouncer becomes the driver of an African-American classical pianist on a tour of venues through the 1960s American South.
Based on the true story of Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx, who is hired to drive world-class Black pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South. They must rely on "The Green Book" to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger-as well as unexpected humanity and humour - they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime. Both Mortensen and Ali are certainties for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor nominations in the Awards season.
