How Mahershala Ali Schools Viggo Mortensen in ‘Green Book’ | Anatomy of a Scene



In the 1962-set “Green Book,” based on a true story, Viggo Mortensen plays a nightclub bouncer named Tony Lip. He’s hired to drive a concert pianist, Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) on tour in the South. Tony’s street style clashes with Don’s refined nature throughout the film and in this scene, in which the two have stopped at a convenience store. The director Peter Farrelly narrates the conflict that ensues when Tony takes a jade stone he found on the ground in front of a box of the same stones for sale. Farrelly comments on the father-son nature of the relationship that the two forge, with Don teaching Tony life lessons of right and wrong.
