“Jojo Rabbit” is a smart, accessible, inclusive film that opens doors at a time when many are slamming them shut. It’s a celebration of the gift of life that’s inviting you to dance with it. So dance with it.” – Detroit News
An enchanting, whimsical satire about the absurdity of war as seen through a child’s eyes, “Jojo Rabbit” doubles as an important film about the need for understanding in a divided world. In addition to writing and directing the sharp, colorful comedy, Taika Waititi stars as a buffoonish version of Hitler, the imaginary friend of 10-year-old Jojo (the wonderful Roman Griffin Davis). It’s the waning days of World War II in Nazi Germany, and in his head, Jojo is dedicated to the idea of Hitler and joining the war alongside his fellow countrymen.
In reality, he wouldn’t hurt a fly — or a rabbit.
Directed by Taika Waititi, DCP, 108 mins, 2019.
