GREEN BOOK

Academy Award nominee Viggo Mortensen and Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali star in GREEN BOOK, a film inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line. When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class black pianist, 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 and danger as well as unexpected humanity and humor, they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime. Nominated for 5 Oscars.
