Overview

The Audience Award at September’s Toronto International Film Festival just went to Jojo Rabbit.  Why is that significant? Well, for starters…the past decade’s Audience Award winners include Oscar Best Picture Winners and Nominees Green Book, La La Land, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Room, The Imitation Game, Silver Linings Playbook, 12 Years a Slave, The King’s Speech, Precious and Slumdog Millionaire. In fact, only once since 2007 has the winner NOT been at least a Best Picture Oscar nominee.  A lonely German boy’s world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (director/actor Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism. “Waititi strikes just the right balance between comedy, tragedy, and drama, the result being a very funny WWII film that nevertheless carries an incredibly important message about the here and now” —Chris Tilly, IGN. PG-13. 108 Min.
