Wednesday, June 8 at 8:00 pm - Cantor Cooperman and Allan Staples will lead a discussion on the Academy award winning film Jojo Rabbit. Watch in advance and we'll discuss together. Click here for rental options.
A World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy named Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) whose world view 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.
