There's much about Jojo Rabbit that seems like it shouldn't work, starting with its very premise. 

The dramedy centers on a 10-year-old Nazi enthusiast in 1940s Germany. His best friend is an imaginary Adolf Hitler, who comes across like 10-year-old brat trapped in a grown man's body. And it's executed with a quaint, quirky, practically Wes Andersonian flair. 

But if anyone could pull it off, it's probably writer-director Taika Waititi — and pull it off he does, delivering a hard-to-categorize crowdpleaser bursting with humor, heart, and tragedy. 

Over his career, Waititi's demonstrated a particular knack for stories of children working through harsh circumstances via fantasy, wishful thinking, and no small amount of wry humorJojo Rabbit, like Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Boy before it, isn't a film for kids per se, but it's able to speak to them on their level, acknowledging their innocence without turning away from real dangers.
