Movie Info

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.

Critic Reviews for Green Book

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4)

A film that's remarkably conventional and shallow in its treatment of racism, but also an undeniable showcase for two great performers.

September 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Distinctive and amusing turns by Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali make Peter Farrelly's first solo feature outing a lively and likable diversion.

Mortensen's role may be the showier of the two, but Ali is a marvel to watch in his musical performances.

A touching and meaningful look at race and class in America, the likes of which studios rarely produce anymore.

The characters here deal with humiliation after humiliation, and usually, there's no "Hollywood solution," like just punching your way out of danger. The danger is ever-present and all around you. Sometimes the characters have no choice but to suffer.

September 18, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Mahershala Ali switches gears with ease from playing a hardened drug dealer in Moonlight to portraying a refined artist with great dignity and many secrets in this heart-warming crowd-pleaser.
