The film is set in America in 1962. Green Book tells the heart-warming true story of Tony Lip, a working-class Italian-American bouncer who takes on a job as a chauffeur for Dr. Don Shirley, a world-class Black pianist. The mismatched pair embark on a two-month tour of concert venues in the racially charged deep south and discover they’re on the road to a meaningful and unique friendship.
The film is very subtle but sympathetic to both the main leading characters. It’s a true depiction of life in those days. It is a fabulous film. A must see.
