Jojo Rabbit

Monday Nite at the Movies

Johannes “Jojo” is 10 years old living in 1940’s Nazi Germany. A fervent member of the Hitler Youth, he is shocked when he finds out his mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their attic. Having to confront his own beliefs, he also has to deal with the intrusion of his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler.
New Zealand director Taika Waititi wrote, directed and stars in Jojo Rabbit. Waititi, who is of Maori and Jewish descent, plays the role of Hitler himself. In his own words, it’s “simple, what better ‘f*ck you’ to the guy?”
Advertised as “an anti-hate satire,” Jojo Rabbit opened at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) 2019. It received a lot of praise from critics, with particular interest being paid to its juxtaposition of the movie’s heartwarming message with its Third Reich setting, and the choice to portray the Nazis in the movie, particularly Hitler, as comical, sometimes even sympathetic.
The cast also includes Scarlett Johansson, Academy Award winner Sam Rockwell, Stephen Merchant, and Rebel Wilson.
