In 1962, Tony “Tony Lip” Vallelonga, a tough bouncer, is looking for work when 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 start to face them together. In doing so, they would nurture a friendship and understanding that would change both their lives.—Kenneth Chisholm ([email protected])

Upon the film’s release, the Shirley family stated that Tony and Doc were not friends, they had “an employer-employee relationship”. In January 2019, audio recordings of an interview with Don Shirley emerged in which he stated, “I trusted him implicitly… You see… not only was [Tony] my driver, we never had an employer/employee relationship. You don’t have time for that bullshit. My life is in this man’s hands!… So you’ve got to be friendly with one another.”
