As the last days of World War II play out, Jojo Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis) is a bright, awkward ten-year-old with a Hitler Youth uniform and the führer (as envisioned with relish by director Taika Waititi) as his imaginary best friend. Having bought into Nazi notions, he’s affectionately teased by his doting mother (Scarlett Johansson) and further challenged when he finds Jewish teenager Elsa (Thomasin McKenzie) has been squirreled away in his attic. Featuring a stellar cast, Waititi’s wild, whip-smart comedy is a riot, a film packed with laughs and charm while it waves two fingers at hateful ideologues and damns the violence they inspire. MH
