The Green Book is a civil-rights-era road drama starring Oscar-nominated “Captain Fantastic” actor Viggo Mortensen and Oscar-winning “Moonlight” actor Mahershala Ali. The film takes its title from a guidebook published annually between 1936 to 1966 called the “Negro Motorist Green Book,” which listed businesses — restaurants, hotels, nightclubs, service stations and the like — that served black customers.
