THE INCREDIBLE ADVENTURES OF JOJO
(AND HIS ANNOYING LITTLE SISTER AVILA)
2014, 86 min, Dir. Brian Schmidt
“This is not a film for overprotective parents. Boys use pocket knives. Girls eat bugs.” So begins the fantasy adventure of six-year-old Jojo and his baby sister Avila who are forced to brave the wilderness on their own following a car accident. The two of them battle against the odds as they try to escape a deranged hobo, a ravenous pack of wolves, some dirty diapers, abandoned couches, and the violent fury of Mother Nature. Edgy, family friendly fun.
