Genre: Comedy, Drama, War. Dir: Taika Waititi. Country: USA / New Zealand.
Writer director Taika Waititi brings his signature style of humour and pathos to his latest film, 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. Also starring Sam Rockwell and Rebel Wilson, this is the perfect blend of satire and emotion from the comedy maestro Waititi.
