unnamed-33-759x500.jpg

Check out the new trailer for Green Book starring Academy Award® winner Mahershala Ali and Academy Award® nominee Viggo Mortensen. 

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.

Green Book is also executive produced by Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer.  

 

I first learned about the “Green Book” back in 2011 when Atlanta’s own Theatrical Outfit  presented Calvin Alexander Ramsey's production of the same name. It’s story followed a young African American couple and a Holocaust survivor who shared accommodations during Jim Crow America. I am super excited to see this amazing story come to life on the big screen.
