Dr. Don Shirley is a world-class African-American pianist who's about to embark on a concert tour in the Deep South in 1962. In need of a driver and protection, Shirley recruits Tony Lip, a tough-talking bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx. Despite their differences, the two men soon develop an unexpected bond while confronting racism and danger in an era of segregation.
“In a world that seems to get uglier every day, this movie's gentle heart and mere humanity feel like a salve.” ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
“Witty and warm as cashmere, Green Book is a two-hander in which both stars soar with humour and heart.” OBSERVER
“Thanks in large part to the winning chemistry between Ali and Mortensen, and a pretty darn inspirational true-life story as its foundation, this was one of the best times I've had at the movies this year.” CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
