Movie recommendation: Green Book

Eleanor McCloskey, CND

Green Book is a 2018 American comedy-drama film based on a true life story. The setting is the Deep South in the 1960’s; the story follows a tour with Dr. Don Shirley, a black man, a world class pianist, who needs a driver – protector during the trip. Tony Lip, a tough-talking Italian bouncer from the Bronx is recruited. Maybe we have forgotten the degree of segregation experienced at that time, and maybe some of us never knew. The film shows the truth of the time, and shares a witty warmth and humour as the two men develop a man-man friendship, a relationship that persisted long after the tour. (The Green Book was a booklet with information of places where black travellers can expect to receive hospitality when they travel).
