Highlights This Week
- The Oscar®-winning film JOJO RABBIT begins streaming on Saturday, August 1. Written and directed by Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK), JOJO RABBIT is 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. After making its world premiere at TIFF 2019 where it received the Grolsh People’s Choice Award, the film went on to snag a Best Picture nomination and win Best Adapted Screenplay at the 2020 Academy Awards.
- THE GO-GO’S, a new documentary from SHOWTIME, premieres on Friday July 31, at 9 p.m. ET. As the first multi-platinum-selling, all-female band to play their own instruments, write their own songs and soar to No. 1 on the album charts, the Go-Go’s are the most successful female rock band of all time. Underpinned by candid testimonies from The Go-Go’s past and present, this documentary chronicles the meteoric rise to fame of a band born of the LA punk scene that not only captured but created a zeitgeist.
- An all-new episode of CANADA’S DRAG RACE drops on Thursday, July 30 at 9 p.m. ET. This week, Snatch Game, the iconic star-studded celebrity impersonation game show, makes its Canadian debut, as the queens do their best to snatch the judge’s attention.
