Dr. Don Shirley is a world-class African-American pianist, who is 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 neighbourhood in the Bronx, and they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. 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.” – Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
