It’s 1962. African-American classical and jazz pianist Donald (Mahershala Ali) is in need of a driver to take him through the deep south for an upcoming tour. He’s aware of the troubles that he might face in different locations due to the colour of his skin, and needs somebody to act as a bodyguard and assistant. Italian-American bouncer Tony (Viggo Mortensen) is in need of employment, but Tony isn’t an obvious choice – he’s as rude as Donald is refined, and his views on race are problematic to say the least, but he carries with him the muscle that Donald is sure he’ll need and so the two set off.
The film is named after “The Negro Motorist Green Book”, a mid-20th century guidebook for African-American travelers to help them find motels and restaurants that would accept them.
