GREEN BOOK is a drama in which an Italian-American takes a job as driver to a black pianist on tour through the Deep South.

Language

There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms such as 'pricks', 'bastard', 'balls', 'crap', 'piss', 'shit', 'bullshit', 'ass', 'asshole', 'son of a bitch', 'screwed', 'Jesus Christ', 'damn' and 'goddamn'. Racist language includes 'nigger', 'coon', 'jungle bunny' and 'chink'.

Violence

A man punches the pianist's stomach in a racist assault. A bouncer repeatedly punches a rowdy customer, with brief bloody detail.

Discrimination

Racist attitudes in the US of the early 60s are portrayed: a man throws away glasses after black workers have drunk from them; the pianist is refused service in shops, and told to use the servants' lavatory. This behaviour is not endorsed by the film.

There are mild sex references to 'tits', and the implication that a couple are caught having sex in a public place.
