The Green Book is a guide to hotels and restaurants that accept black customers. For south bound African-American musician Don Shirley and his white driver Tony it is an essential requirement. Inspired by a true story, the relationship between the two men negotiates the snobbery of one and the barely concealed racism of the other, plus the added complication of role reversal. The brilliant performances of the two central roles alone make this film worthy of its Oscar for Best Picture.
