New Zealanders trend of punching above our weight continues with Jojo Rabbit, with our fave Kiwi talent, Taika Waititi, both directing and starring in this WWII-set black comedy-drama. After discovering that his mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a Jewish girl in their attic, a German boy has to confront his own worldview with the help of his imaginary friend, a half-witted Hitler (played by Waititi). With a series of hit movies already under to his name, we can only assume this latest release from the Kiwi director will be another must-see.
