Winner of three Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor - Mahershala Ali.
Based on a true story, working class Italian American bouncer Tony 'Lip' Vallelonga (Viggo Mortensen) is hired to drive pianist Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) around the Deep South for a concert tour. But as the 1960s Deep South is no safe place for an African American, Tony must also act as a bodyguard to Shirley.
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.
