WINNER OF BEST FILM AT THE 2019 OSCARS:
A working-class Italian-American bouncer becomes the driver of an African-American classical pianist on a tour of venues through the 1960s American South.
Based on the true story of Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx, who is hired to drive world-class Black pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) 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 humour - they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.
Both Mortensen and Ali are certainties for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor nominations in the Awards season.
Best Film, Best Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali) and Best Screenplay at Oscars 2019.
