      EVENT DETAILS
      JoJo Rabbit

      Opening at The Ross on Friday, November 8, JOJO RABBIT's blend of irreverent humor and serious ideas definitely won't be to everyone's taste -- but either way, this anti-hate satire is audacious to a fault. You'll laugh, you'll cry - sometimes at the same time. But love or hate JOJO RABBIT, Taika Waititi's hit-and-miss Nazi dramedy is damn near impossible to shake. Our suggestion: Stick with Waititi, he's worth following anywhere. –Peter Travers, Rolling Stone In its precision, JOJO RABBIT may remind you of Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, another comedy in which clownish forces of fascism squared off against love, humor and elegance -- both movies feel like they come from the same universe. –Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out [Waititi] finds such strange, sweet humor in his storytelling that the movie somehow maintains its ballast, even when the tone inevitably (and it feels, necessarily) shifts. –Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly JOJO RABBIT is showing at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center on Friday, November 8 through Thursday, November 21. Show times are available at www.TheRoss.org, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated JOJO RABBIT PG-13 (for mature thematic content, some disturbing images, violence, and language). This program is being presented with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. 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 (Roman Griffin Davis as JoJo) 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.
