I cannot wait to see this movie. Not only is this movie based on a true friendship, the book was real and a guide for Blacks to find safe places to stay while traveling on the road. I remember my parents talked about using it in the 60s when traveling throughout the south by car to visit relatives.
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.
In theaters November 21, 2018.

I saw this trailer when I went to see THUG. I can’t wait to see this movie, I love Mahershala and I never heard of Dr Don Shirley until now!
I do too. Should be a great movie!
