JOJO RABBIT | Official Trailer | FOX Searchlight.
In the later stages of World War II, Johannes "Jojo" Betzler joins the Deutsches Jungvolk. Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) is an innocent boy but heavily indoctrinated with the Nazi ideals (manifested in his imaginary friend, Adolf (Taika Waititi), a supportive and buffoonish version of Adolf Hitler). On the day of his first Hitler Youth training camp run by Captain Klezendorf, he is given the derisive nickname "Jojo Rabbit" by the other children after refusing to kill a rabbit to prove his killer instinct. Pepped up by Adolf, he returns to prove his bravery, stealing a Stielhandgranate and throwing it without supervision. The grenade explodes at his feet, leaving him scarred and limping. Jojo's mother Rosie (Scarlett Johansson) coerces Klenzendorf into ensuring that Jojo is included and given responsibilities. Jojo is given small tasks such as spreading propaganda leaflets throughout the town, and collecting scrap for the war effort.
Alone at home one day, Jojo discovers Elsa Korr (Thomasin McKenzie), a teenage Jewish girl and his late sister's former classmate, hiding upstairs. Jojo is both terrified and aggressive towards Elsa, who easily outwits and overpowers the young boy's attempts at guile and aggression. The two are left in a stalemate as the revelation that Rosie is hiding Elsa would lead to Rosie's and Jojo's executions, and neither is willing to tell Rosie that they know for fear of what would happen next. Jojo continues to speak to Elsa, doing his best to uncover her "Jew secrets" so he can write a book about Jews for Klenzendorf. Elsa is both saddened and amused by the doctrine that Jojo believes. When she tells Jojo about her fiancé Nathan, Jojo forges a letter from Nathan claiming to have found someone else. When he sees her hurt by this, he quickly puts together a retraction.
