What is the meaning behind the film's title, "Green Book"?
The title of the movie comes from The Negro Motorist Green Book, more commonly referred to as "The Green Book", which was a segregation-era guidebook for African-American motorists that alerted them to which restaurants, garages and hotels offered service to blacks. Travelers would also encounter "sundown towns," which prohibited blacks from being outside after nightfall. Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) and Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) encounter one such town in the movie.

When did the real story behind Green Book take place?
Like in the film, the true story unfolded mainly in 1962. Tony Lip, an Italian-American bouncer from the Bronx who was employed at New York City's Copacabana nightclub, accepted a job driving the renowned African-American musician Don Shirley through the Deep South

YEAR IN REVIEW: 2018 Libertarian Films.
Two films I’ve seen made the list, Chappaquiddick and Death of Stalin. Both are quite good, especially the latter. Mostly though I was shocked that either one got made without anyone’s Hollywood career being sent to a forced labor camp.
