Full film details

Tony Lip (Viggo Motensen) is a bouncer for a night club. Uneducated and working class, his background couldn’t be much more different to that of Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a world-class pianist on a tour of the US.

Don is looking for a chauffeur who can handle himself – along with any threats that might arise. Heading into the Deep South, he’s more than aware that, as an African-American man, he will inevitably face racism and discrimination on his journey.

And that’s where Tony comes in. Armed with a copy of the Green Book, a guide to US travel for African Americans, Don hires Tony to be his driver and bodyguard for his tour.

Leaving behind his wife (Linda Cardellini) and children to embark on the journey, Tony’s own prejudices against African-Americans quickly becomes apparent, but time spent with Don proves to be a revelation.

Green Book is the solo project of director Peter Farrelly, who is known for his work with brother Bobby on Dumb and Dumber and There’s Something About Mary. Hotly tipped for award season, the famed director takes a very different approach from his previous cult classics.

Picking up the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay, Green Book stars Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), winning a second Oscar for his portrayal of Dr Don Shirley, alongside Viggo Mortensen (Captain Fantastic) and Linda Cardellini (Avengers: Age of Ultron).
