In this audacious anti-satire, a young boy in Hitler's army finds out his mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their home. Critically acclaimed, and hilarious!
Writer director Taika Waititi (‘Hunt For the Wilderpeople’), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (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.
Refreshingly daring, ‘Jojo Rabbit’ tears into the nature of prejudice and how the young can be socially conditioned to become rule-loving racists. Waititi manages to walk the fine line between fantasy and drama, humor and wartime horror without losing his balance. (Some subtitles)
