A new film, “Jojo Rabbit”, hasn’t attracted much attention. But it should. Rick Brough has the lowdown, with this week’s Friday Film Review.
The story here you could almost expect to see in an Afterschool Special.
In the waning days of World War II, with Germany on the brink of defeat, scrawny, hapless 10-year-old Jojo Betzler strives to be a perfect little specimen of the Hitler Youth. But when he finds that his mother has hidden a Jewish teenager in their attic, Jojo finds his whole worldview is challenged, and ultimately transformed.
