Plot Summary

In 1962, Tony "Tony Lip" Vallelonga, a tough bouncer, is looking for work with his nightclub is closed for renovations. The most promising offer turns out to be the driver for the African-American classical pianist Don Shirley for a concert tour into the Deep South states. Although hardly enthused at working for a black man, Tony accepts the job and they begin their trek armed with The Negro Motorist Green Book, a travel guide for safe travel through America's racial segregation. Together, the snobbishly erudite pianist and the crudely practical bouncer can barely get along with their clashing attitudes to life and ideals. However, as the disparate pair witness and endure America's appalling injustices on the road, they find a newfound respect for each other's talents and heart to face them together. In doing so, they would nurture a friendship and understanding that would change both their lives. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia Prior to filming, Viggo Mortensen was invited to meet Nick Vallelonga's family over a six-hour dinner. He said, "It almost destroyed me because I hadn't gained the weight yet - I hadn't expanded my stomach... It was almost lethal..." When the family assumed he was declining more helpings was because he didn't like the food, he felt compelled to finish his plate. But every time he finished a plate, they brought another one. "I said goodbye. We did a picture together. I limped to my rental car and I made a big show of 'oh, I'm driving back to Manhattan!' And I drove around the corner, parked the car, leaned my seat back, undid my belt and lay there for an hour, just groaning." See more »
Goofs Tony criticizes Don for not being familiar with several black musicians whose music they hear on the radio while traveling, one of the artists being Aretha Franklin. By the fall of 1962 Aretha had had only six chart hits, none of which reached higher than #37, so it's doubtful that an Italian from the Bronx would have been very familiar with her music. See more »

Crazy Credits "Larry the Crow" gets a mention. This was an actual crow that Viggo Mortensen found injured near the set, and tried in vain to nurse back to health. He was no doubt named for Viggo's favorite soccer team, San Lorenzo (Lawrence in Spanish). The team nickname is "the Crows". See more »
