A World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy named Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) 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.Written by

Hitler refers to the plot by Stauffenburg to kill him "last year", which would place the movie in early 1945. Later on, JoJo 's mother claims that the Americans will be landing in France. The Normandy invasion took place in June 1944, before the attempt to kill Hitler on July 20, 1944. But due to the lack of information in Germany about the successes of the allied nations, the news could have traveled underground and very well crossed each other. See more »

The trailer for the movie had me scratching my head but as a HUGE fan of Waititi I felt I ought to give it a shot.
My best spoiler free review is that this is an original, outrageous film. The emotional gamut we are subjected to is whiplash inducing, but without the neck brace and ambulance chasing lawyers.
Every actor is perfection. Young JoJo and Yorkie are devastatingly earnest and so talented. Sam Rockwell is always a master. Every subtle satire is underwritten with a grim level of truth. The soundtrack n unexpected choice.
Go see it. Prepare yourself for quite a ride.
