Directed by indie film legend, Jason Reitman and written by Diablo Cody, Juno is one of those small films that has such an excellent script, that actors just had to be a part of it and people had to see it. It made a solid splash during award season and at the box office.
We are with Juno (Ellen Page) every scene, as she navigates the decisions that have to be made after she finds out that she is pregnant with Bleeker’s (Michael Cera) baby. Family and close friends are involved, but Juno ultimately makes a decision based on what’s best for the baby. This film will make you laugh and cry, as well as refer you to some kick-ass rock music and slasher films. There’s a reason Diablo won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay with this raw and purely original story.
