An anti-hate satire
Writer director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, JOJO RABBIT, 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 girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in her attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his naive patriotism.
“Taika Waititi knocks it out of der park with the meaningful lunacy of his anti-hate satire, which is equal parts Mel Brooks, Wes Anderson and Waititi’s own whimsical brilliance.” – Toronto Star
“It’ll make you smile, it’ll make you sad, and it’ll make you believe in the best of us.” – io9.com
“‘Jojo Rabbit’ has so much positivity in its narrative that it could warm the iciest of hearts. It’s absolutely lovely, and one of the year’s very best films.” – Denton Record-Chronicle
