JOJO RABBIT

Nominated for 6 Academy Awards®, including: Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress (Scarlett Johansson), Best Film Editing, Best Adapted Screenplay (WINNER), Best Production Design, and Best Costume Design.

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.

“Taika Waititi's film is tender, daring, and sharp—precisely pitched so that it keeps its path steady and its ambitions in check.” —Clarisse Loughrey, Independent UK

“Not safe on any level. Anyone who ventures into the Hitler comedy subgenre is guaranteed a bumpy road. Taika walks in the path of absurdist comedy stalwarts Mel Brooks and Charlie Chaplin…. When you do stick the landing, it is all the more impressive.” —Jon Favreau, quoted in Variety

“Waititi infuses a level of humanity into WWII without blindly forgiving those responsible, nor hiding behind the guise of good guys in bad situations, or allowing even a 10-year-old boy to get away with hate without swift retribution and thorough self-examination.” —Joelle Monique, Paste
