CFF: Jojo Rabbit

The 2019 CFF Awards followed by Closing Film - Preview

Dir Taika Waititi | USA | 2019 | 108 mins | 12A

Writer-director Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, Hunt for the Wilderpeople) brings his signature irreverence and pathos to this smart World War II-era satire.

A lonely young boy, Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) is living in Germany in the final days of the war, with the Nazi regime, though crumbling, remaining vicious to the last. With his father gone – perhaps dead or even a deserter – Jojo is a game if somewhat inept member of the Hitler Youth, his imaginary friend none other than Adolf Hitler (played by Waititi himself). So when he discovers his mother (Scarlett Johansson) has been hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their house, Jojo must confront the veracity of his beliefs. But does he really ascribe to Nazi ideology or is he just desperate to belong to a group?

Tackling the ludicrousness of racism and nationalism head on, Waititi has crafted an audacious black comedy that besides clearly being very timely, also boasts great emotional depth and tenderness. With lovely central performances from Davis and McKenzie and a fantastic wider cast that also includes Stephen Merchant, Sam Rockwell and Rebel Wilson, Jojo Rabbit is riotously funny, moving and relevant.

Please note, all Cornwall Film Festival screenings are unallocated seating.
