January 24th - January 30th
During World War II, a young German boy named Jojo has only his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler, for company. Yet, when he finds that his single mother is hiding a young Jewish girl, it’s time to take a look at his own view of the world. Taika Waititi directs and stars in this satirical comedy starring Roman Griffin Davis, Scarlett Johansson, Thomasin McKenzie and Rebel Wilson.
Jojo Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis) is a lonely German kid who spends the days of World War II with his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler. He turns to his friend for comfort as the other kids in the Hitler Youth camp laugh at him for being “a frightened rabbit”. Yet, something is about to change in his world.
Secretly, Jojo’s single mother, Rosie Betzler (Scarlett Johansson), has been hiding a young Jewish girl called Elsa Korr (Thomasin McKenzie) in their home.
With only the help of his imaginary dictator friend, it’s time for Jojo to question his nationalistic view of the world.
Directed by and starring Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, What We Do in the Shadows), he appears alongside Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Endgame, Ghost in the Shell), Thomasin McKenzie (The Changeover, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies), Rebel Wilson (The Hustle, Isn’t it Romantic, Pitch Perfect series) and newcomer Roman Griffin Davis in this dark, eyebrow-raising comedy.
