JOJO RABBIT - Wow! I thought this movie would be an ill advised train wreck, but it is just brilliant! It really does balance solid, laugh out loud humor with a real story of life during wartime.
I think kids are often represented in film very much like Schulz's PEANUTS - they talk like adults, and in doing so reveal much more about the nature of adults more than kids. Jojo very much acts like a ten year old, but he has the unfortunate luck of being a ten year old in Nazi Germany. I don't want to give too much away, except to say that you should see it with as little information as possible. Just see it!
Scarlett Johansen is perfect, and the kids in the cast are just wonderful. Highly recommended - and I plan to see it again!
