Jojo Rabbit

There actually are quite a lot of films around, dealing with imaginary friends helping peeps through tough times. But what about a story placed during WWII, about a German kid falling for a hiding Jewish girl - and his imaginery friend is Adolf Hitler? Hmm, very interesting, indeed!

“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.“
