Place du Château
Hollywood, 1947. Top movie stars share the billing with animated characters known as Toons. Roger Rabbit, the most popular “Toons star”, is head-over-heels in love with his gorgeous wife Jessica, to the point that he can’t keep his mind on his work. His studio bosses try to get him back on the straight and narrow and hire a private eye to prove that his wife is cheating on him. Compromising photos are shot and the alleged lover is found murdered. Roger Rabbit is accused of the deed and is sought by the infamous Judge Doom.
Flesh-and-blood actors interact with their animated counterparts on screen in this exhilarating blend at the crossroads of film noir and Tex Avery.
