JoJo Rabbit (12A)
13th January 2020
Release Date: 1st January
is a unique take on WW2 through the eyes of an 10 year old boy, a Nazi fanatic
and aspiring soldier.
The film focussed on JoJo’s journey
from his “Hitler Youth” camp training and Nazi obsession to his dilemma coming
face to face with a young Jewish girl-that he discovers is hidden in his house.
Throughout the film JoJo’s imaginary friend appears- who, in keeping with the
theme of the film- happens to be Hitler played by director Taika Waititi (you
may recognise the name, having previously directed marvel hit
Whilst the film is dark at
times, there are some funny moments particularly with Rebel Wilson (from the
Pitch Perfect franchise) and British comedian & actor Stephen Merchant.
Excellent acting by Scarlett Johansson who plays JoJo’s mother but equally as
good is young JoJo played by actor Roman Griffin Davis
combined-a must see quirky film!
