Academy Award® nominee Viggo Mortensen (“Eastern Promises,” “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy) and Academy Award® winner Mahershala Ali (“Moonlight,” “Hidden Figures”) star in Participant Media and DreamWorks Pictures’ “Green Book.” In his foray into powerfully dramatic work as a feature director, Peter Farrelly helms the film inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line. 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.
