Jojo Rabbit

Jojo Rabbit ★★★★★

A film with a miraculous balance of tone and sentiment that manages to find sweetness and humanity and forgiveness in the darkest of times and offer a narrative path of humor and absurdity to counterpoint a story of the terrifying indoctrination of children and the creeping insidious terror of fascism and authoritarianism. 

Let us not forget that children becoming fanatics selling out their parents and loved ones is no laughing matter and rooted deeply in history particularly the history of the 30s-50s. The real stories of children like Jojo are far darker and more disturbing than this fable—but we have to have hope.
