The Adirondack Film Society (AFS) Screening Series at LPCA, Version 6.0, continues with one of the most daring and critically acclaimed films of 2019.
Writer-director Taika Waititi ("THOR: RAGNAROK," "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 (2020 Golden Globe nominee for Best Actor in a comedy or musical, Roman Griffin Davis as Jojo) whose worldview is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.
Academy-Award-winner Sam Rockwell (for his supporting performance in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) co-stars.
