HOW ABOUT ADOLF? | Film Screening

Being the black sheep of a progressive middle-class German academic family is no easy feat, but Thomas (Florian David Fitz) relishes discovering new ways to poke fun and rile up his siblings. His latest gag – announcing that he and his pregnant girlfriend, Anna (Janina Uhse), have decided to call their son “Adolf” – was merely meant to serve as a good conversation starter or pretext for debate at Stephan (Christoph Maria Herbst) and Elisabeth (Caroline Peters)’s dinner party. It never occurred to Thomas that his ruse to exchange witty repartee with family and friends would lead to a grave upending of appearances.

A breakout hit at the German box office, HOW ABOUT ADOLF? is a superbly crafted and perfectly paced social satire that is winning audiences over across the globe.
