Juno

{5/5} “I guess normalcy isn’t really our style.”

Juno, released in 2007

Juno finds out she’s pregnant but she’s only 16. After a distressing visit to a clinic she decides to have the baby. But she realizes she’s too young to raise it herself — she’ll give it up for adoption. Not to just anyone, though — they have to be a nice couple.

It isn’t quite as funny as I remembered, but it’s still a brilliant movie. Juno is a delightfully quirky character.

It’s about doing what’s right for you.

Ellen Page almost steals the show but the supporting cast is terrific too.

Stars Michael Cera, Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons, Jennifer Garner, and Jason Bateman. Directed by Jason Reitman (Up in the Air). The soundtrack contains unique songs by Kimya Dawson and others.

This is probably the 2nd time I’ve seen it.
