Don's record label gives Tony a copy of the Green Book , a guide for African-American travelers to find motels, restaurants, and filling stations that would serve them.

They begin the tour in the Midwest before eventually heading farther south. Tony and Don initially clash as Don is disgusted by Tony's habits while Tony feels uncomfortable being asked to act with more refinement. As the tour progresses, Tony is impressed with Don's talent on the piano, and increasingly appalled by the discriminatory treatment that Don receives from his hosts and the general public when he is not on stage.

A group of white men threatens Don's life in a bar and Tony rescues him. He instructs Don not to go out without him for the rest of the tour. Throughout the journey, Don helps Tony write letters to his wife, correctly spelling and rephrasing passages which deeply move her. Tony encourages Don to get in touch with his own estranged brother, but Don is hesitant, observing that he has become isolated by his professional life and achievements.

In the south, Don is found in a gay encounter with a white man at a YMCA pool and Tony bribes the officers to prevent the musician's arrest. Don is upset that Tony "rewarded" the officers for their treatment. Later, the two are arrested after a police officer pulls them over late at night in a sundown town and Tony punches him after being insulted.

While they are incarcerated, Don asks to call his lawyer and instead uses the opportunity to reach Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy , who pressures the governor to release them. Because Tony lost his temper, Don is frustrated that he had to distract Kennedy who, with his brother President John F.

Kennedy , are working hard for minority rights. On the night of the final performance on tour in Birmingham, Alabama , Don is refused entry into the whites-only dining room of the country club , the same room in which he has been hired to perform.

He can order from the menu but must eat in a small changing room. First Tony says to Don that it is the last show, and he should order from the menu so they can finish and go North. Tony then threatens the owner, and Don calms him down, saying he will let Tony decide whether he should play or not. Tony walks out, followed by Don and the management yelling about a contract. He then plays as one of the band which gets everyone on their feet dancing.

Tony and Don head back north to try to make it home by Christmas Eve. While en route on a snowy road they are stopped by another police officer. To their surprise, the officer turns out to be a Maryland State Trooper who simply wants to help Tony safely change a flat tire and doesn't harass them.

Later, Tony is too exhausted from driving in the snow to get home without sleep and says he will stop at the next lodging. The same night the car arrives in the snowy Bronx with Don driving and Tony asleep in the back. He wakes Tony, who invites him up to meet his wife at his home, but Don wishes him a merry Christmas and returns to his own apartment.

A Christmas party is in full swing at Tony's place and he is given a grand welcome by all those present. Tony is very happy to see his wife after a long time.

Behind late arriving guests Don appears at Tony's place with champagne. He is embraced by Tony and then his wife, who warmly thanks Don for helping Tony with the letters.

Viggo Mortensen began negotiations to star in the film in May , and put on 40—50 pounds for the role. Production began that week in New Orleans. For the film's soundtrack, Farrelly incorporated an original score by composer Kris Bowers and one of Shirley's own recordings.


The soundtrack also includes rarities from s and s American music recommended to him by singer Robert Plant , who was dating a friend of Farrelly's wife at the time he had finished the film's script. During dinner on a double date, his wife and her friend stepped outside to smoke and the director asked Plant for advice on picking songs for the film that would be relatively unknown to contemporary audiences.

In an interview with Forbes , the director explained that the soundtrack ended up not only avoiding rote nostalgia, "but also those songs were really inexpensive and I did not have a huge budget so I was able to come up with some sensational pop songs from the time that were long forgotten". A soundtrack album was released on November 30, , [20] by Milan Records , [21] featuring Bowers' score, songs from the plot's era, and a piano recording by Shirley.

Green Book began a limited release in the United States, in 20 cities, on November 16, , and expanded wide on November 21, The film was previously scheduled to begin its release on the 21st.

On November 7, , during a promotional panel discussion, Mortensen said the word " nigger ". He prefaced the sentence with, "I don't like saying this word", and went on to compare dialogue "that's no longer common in conversation" to the period in which the film is set.

Mortensen apologized the next day, saying that "my intention was to speak strongly against racism" and that he was "very sorry that I did use the full word last night, and will not utter it again". Deadline wrote that the opening was "far from where [it needed] to be to be considered a success," and that strong audience word of mouth and impending award nominations would be needed in order to help the film develop box office legs.

Rival studios argued that Universal went too wide too fast going from 25 theaters to 1, in less than a week.

The website's critical consensus reads, " Green Book takes audiences on a surprisingly smooth ride through potentially bumpy subject matter, fueled by Peter Farrelly's deft touch and a pair of well-matched leads. It achieves that glow slowly, but by the middle and certainly by the end, it's there, the sense of something magical happening, on screen and within the audience. But our investment in the characters rarely flags, thanks to Mortensen and Ali and a director who is interested in cleanly and efficiently delivering a story worth hearing.

Jazz artist Quincy Jones said to a crowd after a screening: So it is wonderful that his story is finally being told and celebrated. Mahershala, you did an absolutely fantastic job playing him, and I think yours and Viggo's performances will go down as one of the great friendships captured on film. Lawrence Ware of The New York Times criticized the movie saying, "The screenplay essentially turns Shirley into a black man who thematically shapeshifts into whoever will make the story appealing to white audiences—and that's inexcusable.

Green Book has received numerous award nominations.

Our Mission

Shirley's relatives condemned the film, stating that they were not contacted by studio representatives until after development, and that it misrepresented Shirley's relationship with his family. Don's brother Maurice Shirley said, "My brother never considered Tony to be his 'friend'; he was an employee, his chauffeur who resented wearing a uniform and cap. This is why context and nuance are so important. The fact that a successful, well-to-do black artist would employ domestics that did NOT look like him, should not be lost in translation.

In one of them the former stated "I trusted him implicitly. You see, Tony got to be, not only was he my driver. The interviews also support many other events depicted by the movie. Mahershala Ali responded with an apology to Shirley's nephew Edwin Shirley III, saying that "I did the best I could with the material I had" and that he was not aware that there were "close relatives with whom I could have consulted to add some nuance to the character". He told Variety that "Don Shirley himself told me not to speak to anyone" and that Shirley "approved what I put in and didn't put in.

Controversial race drama Green Book grabs top prize at Oscars

The film has been criticized for advancing a white savior narrative in film that perpetuates stereotypes. Salon said the film combines "the white savior trope with the story of a bigot's redemption". He said he had long discussions with the actors and producers on the point, and believes that it was not advanced by the film, saying it is "about two guys who were complete opposites and found a common ground, and it's not one guy saving the other. It's both saving each other and pulling each other into some place where they could bond and form a lifetime friendship.

Morris argues that the film represents a specific style of racial storytelling "in which the wheels of interracial friendship are greased by employment, in which prolonged exposure to the black half of the duo enhances the humanity of his white, frequently racist counterpart".

Congratulations to all our lucky winners below. The same night the car arrives in the snowy Bronx with Don driving and Tony asleep in the back. Don's brother Maurice Shirley said, "My brother never considered Tony to be his 'friend'; he was an employee, his chauffeur who resented wearing a uniform and cap. He instructs Don not to go out without him for the rest of the tour.

However, the film is held back, as so many films about oppression are, by a reluctance to create shades of grey in the main characters, as if any hint of unlikeability about them would render them worthless. Such a wholesome movie and as expected, Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali did not disappoint!

They begin the tour in the Midwest before eventually heading farther south.
