An Afternoon at the Movies: Green Book

  • Frisbie Senior Center 52 East Northwest Highway Des Plaines, IL, 60016 United States (map)

Green Book is the real life account of Jamaican born pianist Don Shirley's musical tour through the Deep South during the Jim Crow era. Shirley enlists the services of rough and tough New York City bouncer Tony Lip as his personal chauffeur and bodyguard as he performs jazz piano sets through a section of America where he is most unwelcome. While the duo's personalities and lifestyles clash at first, their bond on the road strengthens as they each navigate the culture shock and harsh racism of the 1960s American South in their own ways.

Starring Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali
