Writer director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnorak, Hunt For The Wilderpeople, What We Do in the Shadows), brings his signature style of humour 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. Tackling the ludicrousness of racism and nationalism head
on, Waititi has crafted an audacious black comedy that besides clearly being very timely, also boasts great emotional depth and tenderness. With lovely central performances from Davis and McKenzie and a fantastic wider cast that
also includes Stephen Merchant, Sam Rockwell and Rebel Wilson, Jojo Rabbit is riotously funny, moving and relevant.
