Description

THURS FEB 13 *Double Feature* JOJO RABBIT 2:30, 8:00 6 Academy Award Nominations, including: Best Motion Picture, Supporting Actress-Scarlett Johansson, Adapted Screenplay | Coming of age in Nazi Germany, ten-year-old Johannes "Jojo" Bentzler stumbles into one misadventure after another, encouraged by his enabling imaginary friend Adolf Hitler (writer/director Taika Watiti). Bizarrely hilarious, politically charged, and poignant, Watiti’s wild fantasy becomes unexpectedly moving, an earnest and timely call for humanity in the face of devastating, systemic hatred. (2019, 108 min, DCP) + A HIDDEN LIFE 4:40 A moving depiction of faith, but not a consoling one, A Hidden Life follows an ordinary Austrian farmer (superbly played by August Diehl) who chose martyrdom as a conscientious objector during World War II. Valerie Pachner plays the farmer’s passionately devoted wife. (2019, in English and German with English subtitles, 174 min, DCP ‘Scope)
