The film tells about a German boy, Jojo Betzler, who finds out that his mother is hiding a Jewish girl from the Nazis in their house. The hero is worried about the lack of a father and bullying from peers, and therefore he has only one friend – the imaginary Adolf Hitler.
The teaser showed one of Jojo’s conversations with Adolf, where a fictional version of the Nazi leader convinces the boy not to pay attention to insults: “They also talked a lot about me. Like, this guy is crazy, this crazy man will kill us all! ”
Hitler in the film was played by the director Taika Waititi himself (“Thor: Ragnarok”, “Real Ghouls”), and Jojo – actor Roman Griffin Davis. Scarlett Johansson, Alfie Allen and Sam Rockwell also starred in the film.
Jojo Rabbit will be released in the US on October 18. Whether it will be shown at the Russian box office is unknown.
