Jojo Rabbit runs from Monday, December 16 thru Wednesday, December 18. It screens Monday thru Wednesday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm in Thalian Hall’s Main Theatre.
Writer director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnorak, Hunt For The Wilderpeople) brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, Jojo Rabbit, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.
"Jojo Rabbit is a smart, accessible, inclusive film that opens doors at a time when many are slamming them shut. It's a celebration of the gift of life that's inviting you to dance with it. So dance with it.” Adam Graham, Detroit News
“Taika Waititi has somehow managed to make a dark comedy with Hitler as one of the lead characters that's thought-provoking and hugely entertaining. It's also irresistible in all its weirdness.” Rebecca Murray, Showbiz Junkies
