Jojo Rabbit

Dir. Taika Waititi. New Zealand/USA, 2019. 1h 48m. Starring Roman Griffin Davis, Thomasin McKenzie, Taika Waititi, Sam Rockwell, Scarlett Johansson, Rebel Wilson.

A 10-year-old Nazi, whose imaginary friend is Adolf Hitler, has his worldview challenged after finding out that his mother is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. Writer-director Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) brings his signature blend of humour and pathos to this audacious satirical comedy. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Film, and winner of Best Adapted Screenplay at the BAFTAs.

'Daring, tender and sharp. Keeping its path steady and its ambitions in check, it makes buffoons out of the fascists while lamenting how easily their beliefs can corrupt a nation’ ★★★★★ Clarisse Loughery, The Independent

‘No one is here to educate on or avenge for the horrors of the past - it's too silly for that, but it's crystal-clear that Waititi is laughing on the right side of history.’ Ella Kemp, Sight and Sound Magazine.
