There’s a lot of Oscar buzz around this new film about a working-class Italian-American bouncer, who becomes the driver of an African-American classical pianist on a tour of venues through the 1960s American South.
This is a true story set in 1962 America. Brilliant, famed pianist and composer Dr. Don Shirley is about to embark on a two-month concert tour — deliberately through the Deep South and he wisely hires tough guy, club bouncer Frank “Tony Lip” Vallelonga as his driver and bodyguard for the trip.
Talk about an odd couple. Frank has grown up in the Bronx and sounds like it. He has worked in New York City clubs as “security” for years and is known and admired by several of NYC’s mafia families. Don Shirley is a genius — literally — and misfit. Born in Jamaica, gifted as a musician, he has performed with the London Philharmonic and at the White House. He speaks eight languages fluently. He is as sophisticated and erudite as Frank is tough and street-smart.
