‘Jojo Rabbit’ is a heavy-handed but moving satire of Nazism

(02/09/20 4:56pm)

About a minute into “Jojo Rabbit,” the film’s 10-year-old protagonist has a conversation with his imaginary friend — Adolf Hilter. The young Jojo Betzler (played by Roman Griffin Davis) is about to go on a Hitler Youth training weekend, and Hitler (director Taika Waititi) gives him some words of encouragement before the two practice, repeatedly, the proper way to say “heil Hitler.” So begins a strange entry in the canon of films about Nazi Germany.
