A World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler, Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.
USA TodayFull Review Excellent "Jojo Rabbit” succeeds even with a high degree of difficulty, given the sensitivities of the subject matter, the emotional undercurrent of a mother's devotion to her son and the breaking down of artificial walls to let love in. As much as it makes you laugh, Waititi's must-watch effort is a warm hug of a movie that just so happens to have a lot of important things to say.
NY PostFull Review Good Absurdity and terror rub elbows freely here, though Waititi is clearly more comfortable with the former and takes every opportunity to throw in a gag... There will inevitably be those who find "Jojo Rabbit” in poor taste, maintaining this chapter of history is no laughing matter. But the reason Waititi's films are so resonant is that they've always placed love and humanism at the heart of their humor.
