Mahershala Ali And Viggo Mortensen Star In Greenbook Trailer

Published

on

Dreamworks Greenbook is an eye-opening look at American history.

Green Book tells the true story of a working class Italian bouncer named Tony (Viggo Mortensen) who gets hired as the driver and security for black classical pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Oscar winner Mahershala Ali of Moonllight) as he takes a tour of venues on the South side of the Mason-Dixon line in 1962. The result is a friendship that gives each of these travelers a little perspective on the world around them. Watch the first trailer below to see what we’re talking about.

Ali spoke with EW about the upcoming project.

Green Book was a project that I kept thinking about after I had read it,” Ali says. “If you look at these two archetypes [in films], it’s so often the black guy is serving as some sort of grounding force and reality check who’s coming from a low-income or working class environment, for the wealthier, more affluent character… I really responded to the fact that it was flipped on its head the way that it was, and the fact that it was based on a real relationship.”

Check out the official synopsis for the movie.

When Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger—as well as unexpected humanity and humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

Green Book comes to theaters November 21, 2018.
