During WWII, Jojo Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis), an awkward 10-year-old boy, lives in Germany with his mother, Rosie (Scarlett Johansson). As members of the Hitler Youth, Jojo and his friends have to learn war games and how to blow things up, but the kids aren't that adept and manage to stab themselves with the knives they're given and blow up buildings that are not meant to be blown up. When Jojo is asked to kill a rabbit but can't bring himself to do it, he earns himself the nickname "Jojo Rabbit."


Discouraged, Jojo seeks solace in his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), who does his best to encourage the boy, while telling him stories of his own awkward youth. Meanwhile, Jojo discovers that his mother is hiding Elsa (Thomasin McKenzie), a teenage Jewish girl, in their home. Jojo doesn't know any Jews, but has heard they have horns and scales and hang from the rafters like bats. He decides not to tell the authorities, because he knows that would put his mother in danger, so instead he tries to find out all he can about Elsa, in order to gather information about Jews for the Nazis. As he does so, he has to endure Elsa's teasing, who makes quips such as, "Obviously we are demons who love money."

Unable to get the voice out of her head, Elsa goes on a dangerous journey north to Ahtohallan to find out what happened in the past between the tribe and her people, as well as to find out the truth behind her powers.


Although Elsa feels the journey is too dangerous for anyone else, Anna insists on going with her. Olaf (Josh Gad) the snowman happily joins them, as does Sven the reindeer and a lovesick Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), who's trying to find the right moment to propose to Anna.

Rated:   Canadian Connection

Genre:  Drama

Running Time: 135 min.


During the Civil War in America, we are introduced to the March sisters — a now-married Meg (Emma Watson), New York City writer Jo (Saoirse Ronan), and painter Amy (Florence Pugh), who is living in Paris with Aunt March (Meryl Streep).


Taking us back seven years, we see the March sisters living under one roof. Meg, Jo and Amy are living with their painfully shy sister Beth (Eliza Scanlen) and their mother Marmee (Laura Dern), while their father (Bob Odenkirk) is away serving in the Civil War.


The girls are thrilled to get a new next-door neighbor, Laurie (Timothée Chalamet), who immediately becomes a fan of the March sisters, but especially of the always flirting and teasing headstrong Jo. The movie follows the fate of each sister, as they each choose to follow their heart.


Based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott.
