Synopsis

Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), an uneducated Italian-American bouncer who's known for using his fists to get his way, is hired to drive world-class, celebrated pianist Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South. They must rely on the “Negro Motorist Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for blacks.

Confronted with racism, danger — as well as unexpected humanity and humor — the mismatched pair are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive.

  • 5 stars "This is THE BEST MOVIE that I have seen in a long time. I actually left the theater feeling so good and as a result of this film, having a renewed faith in humanity. Both men benefitted from their relationship by learning to appreciate their diverse points of view. How refreshing in this era of divisiveness to see how people can change for the better by listening to and learning from each other. The film and the actors deserve Academy Awards for their efforts."
  • 5 stars "True story and one of the best movies I've seen this year. No, actually THE best; and I have broad tastes and watch a lot of movies. Makes you laugh, cry, and angry, and happy. When I saw this there was a brief pause as the credits began to roll, and then the audience began to applaud. I was one of them."
  • 5 stars "Excellent. In the sea of garbage that pases for cinema today this story based on a true story is a very human story, with a historical perspective as well. Not often do you see two male characters from different socioeconomic cultures come to develop an understanding and friendship for each other. Very NYC in a way. . You do not have to be the same anything to be friends, something that has been forgotten.today. Some of the viewers call this movie slow moving or preachy? I found it filled with difficulties, humor & humaneness of the human experience.....not to mention gorgeous retro cars.....and excellent actors."
