Even though Jojo Rabbit has been very divisive and polarising with critics so far after its premiere, two people have praised the upcoming Taika Waititi directed “anti-hate” satire – Joe and Anthony Russo.
A day after the film won the Toronto International Film Festival’s 2019 Audience Award, the Russos took to Twitter to express their admiration for Waititi’s latest project.
“This is such a beautifully made, absurdly poignant, scathing indictment of hate,” the Russo Brothers wrote in the tweet. “You will have to search far and wife for a film as unique, important, and timely as JoJo Rabbit. Go see this film the minutes it is in a theater near you…”
This is a beautifully made, absurdly poignant, scathing indictment of hate. You will have to search far and wide for a film as unique, important, and timely as JoJo Rabbit.

Writer director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as JoJo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.
The film features a cast including Roman Griffin Davis, Taika Waititi, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Rebel Wilson, Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie, Alfie Allen, and Stephen Merchant.
Jojo Rabbit is set for release on October 18th in the US and on January 1st in the UK. It will also screen at the London Film festival on October 5th.
