Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) is hired by piano virtuoso Dr Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali, following up his Oscar-winning turn in Moonlight) to be his chauffeur on a concert tour of the American South. Taking two mismatched characters and trapping them on a road trip is the stuff of great comedy, but in Green Book we also get a relevant tale of the 1960s racial divisions.

While the dynamic between Mortensen’s unreconstituted Italian-American lug and Ali’s dignified genius creates real humour, the film doesn’t sugar coat the tensions that see the under the Mason-Dixon line. Based on real events, it's a heartwarming and relevant film that shows us it’s never too late to give up our prejudices.
