Juno is one of those movies you can't help but like- it's very funny and quirky and even a little sad at times. It also teaches us, yet again, that life is not black and white- there are so many gray areas people are forced to sift through and first impressions are not always correct. I have a feeling it'll be a classic someday.

Two of the best people you can get of the screen for this type of movie (Page/Cera). I didn't find their chemistry to be phenomenal, but they are two very good actors and have been put into a movie that is well written and thought out. The film is good at not being preachy or depressing. It does a good job of not down-playing the serious and heart-ache of being a pregnant teenager while not over-exaggerating the plight. It shows the happiness and sadness of the situation.

Our Daily Free Stream: Jason Reitman - Juno (german dubbed). Hier kommt Juno alias Ellen Page - Everybody's Darling! Einer der klügsten, witzigsten und berührendsten Filme, die wir in der Filmkunstbar Fitzcarraldo anbieten können! Juno beginnt mit der Respektlosigkeit einer Screwball Comedy und endet als Charakterstudie. Mit Figuren, die wir lieben gelernt haben! Schon erstaunlich, wie wir trotz der dreisten und hippen Dialoge, Juno von Grund auf kennenlernen und verstehen. Das ist ganz allein der Verdienst von Ellen Page - und gabs in letzter Zeit überhaupt eine tollere Performance als ihre? Ich denke, es ist Konsens, dass Komödie viel schwieriger ist als Drama. Es braucht einen schnellen Verstand, Selbstbewusstsein, aber auch die Gabe, zu stoppen, bevors zu viel wird. Page hat das: Die …

Juno is a sixteen year old high school girl who sleeps with her geeky boyfriend and winds up pregnant, so she decides to put her unborn child up for adoption. I'm sure there are plenty of film-makers out there who think making indie movies is easy; just a case of the emperor's new clothes. If you make it LOOK like it's being clever, people will just assume that it is. But the fact is, the indie film is one of the great bullshit detectors of the cinematic medium. There are no special effects, no car chases or action to hide behind. If the script is no good, the film will suck. Full stop. Juno has a script full of characters that feel like real people having real conversations, and even the most unsympathetic ones are shown to have qualities that you can understand or relate to. It's warm …

A 16 years old highschool student Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page) gets pregnant by her best friend Paulie Bleeker (Michael Cera). A frend of Juno, Leah (Olivia Thirlby), helps her find parents who adopt babies and was able to decide on a successful couple named Mark and Vanessa Loring (Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner). Her father Mac (J.K. Simmons) accompanies her to the couple and the straightforward stepmother Bren (Allison Janney) goes with her during the ultrasound. The screenplay, direction and acting were superb. The only qualms I had were character development particularly Vanessa, who we don’t know her background or actual work is. Another is the situation when you have an eccentric pregnant kid visiting a married man, which doesn’t adds up since she already made her first …
