CAST: Roman Griffin Davis, Thomasin McKenzie, Scarlett Johansson, Taika Waititi, Sam Rockwell, Rebel Wilson DIRECTOR: Taika Waititi
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 as JoJo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.
This is a dark satire that finds a way to make a case for understanding. As circumstances slowly chip away at Jojo's hate-driven worldview, the black comedy finds room for some genuinely touching moments.Steve Pond, TheWrap
A hilarious, moving and timely dark comedy that ridiculous and denounces hateful ideologies. Waititi has crafted one of the best films of 2019.Nestor Bentancor, Nestor Cine Desde Hollywood
Combined with larger-than-life characters, splintering tragedy, and a unique coming-of-age journey Jojo Rabbit conveys a message about love's ability to conquer loneliness, and that's a message that's fervently needed.Joelle Monique, Paste Magazine
