Film Review: Juno

Thanks to a couple of free passes picked up at Comic Book Ink over the weekend, I was lucky enough to catch an early Seattle showing of the movie Juno I've been desperate to see. It required a pilgrimage to Seattle along with Frinklin, as well as fellow bloggers Kevin Freitas and his lovely wife Cassioposa.

There's been so much hype about this movie, about the writer Diablo Cody - she's The Next Big Thing!, how this is Ellen Page's breakthrough role, and could Jennifer Garner win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for this film...and it's all true. Juno is superbly written (if not a little too smart in places), Ellen Page is perfect in the role of Juno, and Jennifer Garner transforms from an uptight woman you think you know into a vulnerable one you genuinely care about.

This film nicely skips over all the clinches you've seen in every other film about teen pregnancy. There's the 16-year-old girl who gets pregnant and makes her own decisions about what to do with the baby. She's definitely the odd one out at school, but her best friend is the head cheerleader. The stepmother who may not be so wicked after all. The adoptive couple who has their own hidden issues to deal with.

Juno's smart mouth made me love her, but the fact that she's not quite got all the answers made her real. The moment that her stepmother explains to her that she cannot spend time alone with a married man - that moment stood out to me. Her refusal to accept her stepmother's warning leads to a painful realization, prompting Juno to ask her father for relationship advice. Seeing a smart-ass kid who still needs her parents is cool.

The trip was definitely worth it. Juno is a lot of fun to watch and I can't wait to see it again on DVD to make sure I didn't miss any good lines because the people in the audience were laughing so loud I couldn't hear them. I highly recommend you get your ass to the theater to see Juno immediately. The film hits theaters today.
