There should be no division in the toilets and restaurants. There should be no disrespect for individual rights and attacks because of their skin color. And the more there should be no green books. However, in the 60th years of this kind of thinking it was normal. Especially for people of the American South, where since the Civil War, even after 1865 absurd importance of segregation remained firmly entrenched in the minds. At that time you can decide to take a trip to the black in those regions? It seems true madness. But here's the thing: for the changes needed one step or one trip to start.

Let not change for the world, to whom far, but changes for specific protagonists, which is not very difficult to empathize. That duo Mortensen and Ali helps ' Green Book ' bloom brighter and win the soul of all the stronger. Amazing Ali , passing from arrogant pride to the charming sincere smile wins a glance, showing uyazvlonnost and compassion, giving, perhaps, the most vivid palette of emotions that this trip of his hero I had to endure.
