Pick of the Day

JoJo Rabbit, Sky Cinema & NOW TV

Taika Waititi’s World War II satire earned an Oscar but didn’t generate universal approval for a film that mixes light humour with the darkness of Nazism.

Jojo is a lonely German boy whose only friend in the world is his imaginary incarnation of Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi). While his world view is shaped by the surrounding of Nazi Genramy, he fails to ingratiate himself with his peers in the Hitler Youth.

His entire world is the turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic.

Aided by his, rather idiotic and imaginary friend, Jojo is forced confront his blind nationalism by this unexpected revelation.

Here’s Laura Delaney’s review.

And here's the trailer:
