Green Book is a 2018 American comedy-drama film. Set in the Deep South in the 1960s, it follows a tour between African-American classical and jazz pianist Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) and Tony Vallelonga (Viggo Mortensen), an Italian-American bouncer who served as Shirley's driver and bodyguard.
Directed by Peter Farrelly, the film was written by Farrelly, Brian Currie and Vallelonga's son, Nick Vallelonga, based on interviews with his father and Shirley, as well as letters his father wrote to his mother. The film is named after The Negro Motorist Green Book, a mid-20th century guidebook for African-American travelers written by Victor Hugo Green, to help them find motels and restaurants that would accept them.
The film won the National Board of Review award of best film of 2018, and was chosen as one of the Top 10 by the American Film Institute. The film has received numerous award nominations, including winning Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (Ali) at the 76th Golden Globe Awards.
