Plot summary

What is Jojo Rabbit movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Jojo Rabbit" movie plot summary.

In the later stages of World War II, ten-year-old Johannes "Jojo" Betzler joins the Deutsches Jungvolk (junior section of the Hitler youth). Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) is an innocent boy who is heavily indoctrinated with Nazi ideals (manifested by his imaginary friend Adolf (Taika Waititi), a supportive and buffoonish version of Adolf Hitler). At the training camp run by Captain Klenzendorf (Sam Rockwell), the other children give Jojo the derisive nickname "Jojo Rabbit" after he refuses to kill a rabbit to prove his worthiness. 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 remains included and is given responsibilities. Jojo is given small tasks such as spreading propaganda leaflets 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 subdues his behavior. The two are left in a stalemate as the revelation that Rosie hiding Elsa would lead to Rosie's execution, and neither Jojo nor Elsa 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.
