♦ 劇情簡介 Plot
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.

♦ 感想 Review
電影名稱”Green Book”源自於在1963~1966年之間出版的《The Negro Motorist Green Book》，它是一本幫助非裔美國黑人找尋「黑人友善」的飯店、餐廳、加油站等的書籍。電影的時間背景是設定在1962年，是美國種族歧視還十分嚴重的年代。
