Jojo (Davis) is a ten-year-old, obedient Nazi boy in WWII Germany whose mother (Johansson) is in the Resistance; Jojo reinvents Hitler (Waititi) as his oddball imaginary friend. Waititi ridicules Nazi ideology with aplomb, and as Jojo journeys towards enlightenment and reconnects with his humanity, it’s even rather beautiful.

A comedy about the Holocaust? Surely not. Well, that's what Italian writer-director-star Benigni has done in fashioning a poignant comic fable about the resilience of the human spirit and the power of the imagination. A humane and moving film.

Adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 novel about a group of sisters growing up after the American Civil War. Gerwig’s affection and respect for the book is obvious but she boldly captures the transition from childhood to womanhood by playing with structure; an outstanding cast and skilful filmmaking make it a beautifully crafted tale of sisterhood, memory and authorship.

Clare (Franciosi) is a singer and convicted thief in 1825 Van Diemens’ Land who, after enduring terrible loss at the hands of some English soldiers, sets out with reluctant tracker Billy (Ganambarr) and murder in her mind. Franciosi is an astonishingly resilient and determined heroine and it’s a grim reminder of the brutality of empire-building.
