JOJO RABBIT is a comedy drama in which a ten-year-old Hitler Youth member begins to question the Nazi ideology after discovering a Jewish girl living in his home.

Discrimination

The story occurs within the context of the Hitler Youth, in which children are indoctrinated into Nazi ideology, taught to adopt discriminatory views concerning Jewish people, and exposed to absurd anti-Semitic propaganda. This includes characterisations of Jewish people as monsters. The main character also has an imaginary friendship with Adolf Hitler, who reinforces these prejudices and uses anti-Semitic language such as 'Jewey cow' and 'dirty Jew'. Though the boy initially joins in, he comes to question it through his burgeoning friendship with a Jewish girl.

Violence

There is aftermath sight of public hangings, including an upsetting scene in which a child finds his mother hanged in the street. There is also bloody injury detail during battle scenes when gunfire is exchanged between German and Allied soldiers. In another scene, a boy attacks a girl with a knife and draws blood. There's also a sequence in which a rabbit is killed.

Injury detail

In one scene a child sustains facial injuries during an accident involving explosives.

Sex

Sex references include references to British soldiers having sex with dogs.

Language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms such as 'shit'.
