JoJo Rabbit was a nearly perfect satire film that hit every single note for me.
Our charming 10 year old lead - JoJo Rabbit is sure he wants to be a Nazi.
He is followed around by his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler, and is torn between the underlying morals of his mother, and the hate-filled propaganda he is exposed to daily. JoJo Rabbit was hilarious, heart-warming, and did not shy away from the hard truths of WWII Germany. Worth the watch.

I was finally able to see this, and I fully understand all the nominations it is
receiving. Jojo Rabbit is a satirical film that takes place in Germany during
WWII. It follows a young boy who dreams of becoming a Nazi, so much so
that his imaginary friend is Hitler. As the film progresses, he finds that his mom
is hiding a Jewish girl in their attic, and is now unsure of right and wrong. This
film does such an incredible job of hitting all emotions, I found myself
laughing and crying throughout. Additionally, I think this movie is a fresh take
to the film industry, and has made the path more many other historical films
of its kind. Because it was so different than anything else I’ve seen, I think it’s
a wonderful film for anyone to check out, and as always if you give it a shot,
let me know your thoughts!

Considering the rise of white nationalism on a global scale, Jojo Rabbit and it's brilliant dressing down of fanaticism, fascism, and hate couldn't have come at a better time. Though the movie is tremendously funny packed with some incredible jokes, it doesn't shy away from the horrifying realities of Germany in World War II and its this balance that makes Jojo Rabbit so special.
