Juno is a 16-year-old high school girl who got pregnant unexpectedly with her classmate. After deciding not to go for abortion, she found a perfect couple who are willing to adopt her child. The storyline sounds simple but the film touches so many critical issues and expresses them in style. Most importantly, the film explores the underage pregnancy as well as love and caring from family. The credit goes to the director Jason Reitman and the script writer Diablo Cody.
The film looks colorful and sounds fresh. I really like the use of colors in the film. The original soundtrack is lively and entertaining to listen to. It goes along very well with the theme of anxiety and uncertainty in the film which eventually ends with smiles in your face and loves in your heart. Ellen Page starred as Juno and she did it pretty well. She deserved her nomination for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy in the upcoming 65th Golden Globe Awards. Another notable Golden Globe nominations include Best Screenplay and Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The film also starred the teen sensation Michael Cera from Superbad and the charismatic Jennifer Garner.
5 Stars out of 5 – The only definition suitable for the film is a feel good coming of age movie presented in style. That being said, there is enough reason to enjoy this film.
