What is the plot of Green Book?
Green book follows the true story of Tony Lip and Don Shirley.
Lip, a working-class Italian-American in the Bronx, New York is hired to drive a famed black pianist across the American Deep South.
Taking place in the 1960s, the south is a land of entrenched segregation and Jim Crow laws.
The official synopsis adds: “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.”
The film is named after The Negro Motorist Green Book, commonly called The Green Book which was a segregation-era road travel guidebook to help African-Americans travel safely while dealing with racial discrimination issues and Jim Crow laws, such as whites-only garages, restaurants and hotels refusing services.
Who stars in the Green Book movie?
Tony Lip is played by Viggo Mortensen of Lord of the Rings fame.
The pianist Don Shirley is played by the Academy Award-winning Mahershala Ali.
