JoJo Rabbit (2019)
Written and Directed by Taika Waititi JoJo Rabbit is a story with a dark humored approach to events unfolding during WWII. JoJo Rabbit takes the perspective of a 10 year old boy in the Hitler Youth Army. When faced with trouble, JoJo counsels with his imaginary “number one” friend Adolf Hitler which leads him down interesting paths guided by a 10-year old’s imagination. After returning injured from a Hitler Youth camp, JoJo discovers a teenage Jewish girl hiding in his home. After losing several knives to the tough yet playful Elsa, and determining the situation to be a stalemate, JoJo decides to learn all he can about his enemy and write the book on the Jewish people as he learns from Elsa. But, JoJo learns more than he plans, ultimately pitting himself against his best friend… imaginary Hitler.
