New York, 1962: when nightclub bouncer Tony (Viggo Mortensen) finds himself out of work, he answers an advert to chauffeur renowned African American classical pianist Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) through a tour of the Deep South where the refined musician will need a measure of protection.
Using the Green Book as their guide on the road, which lists establishments that welcome African Americans, the mismatched duo form an unlikely bond as they are confronted by racism in the segregated south.
With genuine chemistry, Mortensen and Ali essay their classic odd couple roles with aplomb, both actors relishing the opportunity to play against type. Irresistibly entertaining, Green Book offers a well-timed plea for tolerance and empathy.
