DP/30: Jojo Rabbit, Roman Griffin Davis, Archie Yates

  • Published on Dec 11, 2019
  • These two young actors are the heart of Jojo Rabbit, a coming of age dramatic comedy in the midst of the waning days of Nazi Germany. Roman is Jojo. And Archie is his second best friend (after Jojo's imagined Hitler) who brings a world weariness to their circumstances. The duo dropped by to discuss their work on the film and life as kid actors.
    Shot in Los Angeles, December 2019

    somehow I think these comments are curated. Surely I can't be the only person who found young Mr Yates insufferable. I thought his character in the movie was charming and very sweet and one of my favorite characters, but I had a hard time slogging through this interview.
