Green Book takes audiences on a affecting ride through the Deep South in the 1960s, fueled by director Peter Farrelly's deft touch and a pair of well-matched leads.

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.
