The much talked about movie that just happens to have the same name as this very blog is simply a-m-a-z-i-n-g! I watched it this morning and it’s got a great cast; Ellen Page (of Hard Candy) and Michael Cera (of Superbad) is quite the couple and both did a wonderful job.
Juno (Ellen Page) is a Mid-Western highschooler, who decides one day, out of boredom or curiosity, to have sex with her friend Paulie Bleeker (Michael Cera), a member of her school’s track team. She likes him well enough, but isn’t hung up on him. This one time encounter results in Juno’s pregnancy. She and her best friend Leah (Olivia Thirlby) decide to take control of the situation by browsing for prospective adoptive parents in the local Pennysaver newspaper, and Juno settles on seemingly the perfect, affluent couple Mark (Jason Bateman) and Vanessa Loring (Jennifer Garner) who is desperate to have a child. Junos sensitive father (J.K. Simmons) and stepmother (Allison Janney) are very supportive of her and help Juno with her decision to give the baby up for adoption. Juno and her father check out Mark and Vanessa Loring to see if they are the right couple. As time moves closer to having the baby, Juno grows more into a woman, yet she is still a teenager with all the same problems and a few more.
Most people love this movie and so did I! On IMDb it’s got a 8.4/10 rating (18,740 votes), which is pretty amazing. But what’s also impressive is that it’s currently #123 of all time too!
Håber altså snart den kommer til DK! Vil rigtig gerne snart se den :)
