The historical satire Jojo Rabbit stars Director Taika Waititi and young Roman Griffin Davis as a Hitler who is an imaginary playmate to a Nazi youth member who discovers his mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a Jewish girl in their home. The film won the coveted Peoples Award when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and opens today at The Tull Family Theater. (Tidbit: Roman Griffin Davis, 11 when the film was made, is the son of award-winning cinematographer Ben Davis of Guardian of the Galaxy, Captain Marvel, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) and writer-director Camille Griffin.)
