"The great success of GREEN BOOK lies in its modesty, and the straightforward way it recognizes seismic change in the incremental turning of a human heart." — Washington Post
5 Oscar nominations: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay, Best Film Editing
Academy Award nominee Viggo Mortensen (EASTERN PROMISES, THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy) and Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali (MOONLIGHT, HIDDEN FIGURES) star in GREEN BOOK. In his foray into powerfully dramatic work as a feature director, Peter Farrelly helms the 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, 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.
