(9-Great Film)

Fresh. Quirky. Endearing.

The first five minutes watching Juno, I’m always afraid that my love for this film has faded and that I would now find its quirkiness relentless and irritating. But then, the story sets in, and once again I’m drawn to the young heroine, Juno MacGuff (Page), a pregnant high school student preparing to give up her child to a seemingly perfect couple, Mark and Vanessa Loring (Bateman and Garner). Unlike many teen films, the parents here are lovable and not just complete fools used as comedic devices, though they provide plenty of laughs. The entire cast is terrific, Ellen Page, in the titular role first and foremost, is perfect. Wonderful script, wonderful movie.
