Jojo RabbitTaiki Waititi (What We Do In the Shadows, Thor: Ragnarok) writes, directs and stars (as Adolf Hitler) in this irreverent, occasionally surreal and surprisingly big-hearted dramedy. Our titular Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) is an undersized German kid who wants desperately to be a good Nazi. Unfortunately, he's way too sensitive and kindhearted. But that doesn't stop him from having conversations with his imaginary childhood friend Hitler (Waititi). But when Jojo finds a young Jewish girl hidden in the attic by his concerned mother (Scarlett Johansson), he experiences a crisis of dogma (and grows up just a little). This is a tough tonal balancing act, and Waititi nails both the silly satire and the painful drama—even if the story is ultimately a slight one. 108 minutes PG-13.
