As writer and director of the movie, Taika Waititi had a very specific vision for his unique World War II comedy Jojo Rabbit. That vision served him well, from the quirky screenplay to the inspired casting of Scarlett Johansson as young Jojo’s mother. When we spoke to Waititi, he told us he wanted an actress who was a mother herself, and Johansson brought a real sense of maternal love and compassion to the role.
