Storyline

A tale told over four seasons, starting in autumn when Juno, a 16-year-old high-school junior in Minnesota, discovers she's pregnant after one event in a chair with her best friend, Bleeker. In the waiting room of an abortion clinic, the quirky and whip-sharp Juno decides to give birth and to place the child with an adoptive couple. She finds one in the PennySaver personals, contacts them, tells her dad and step-mother, and carries on with school. The chosen parents, upscale yuppies (one of whom is cool and laid back, the other meticulous and uptight), meet Juno, sign papers, and the year unfolds. Will Juno's plan work, can she improvise, and what about Bleeker? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

My Favorite Indie Movie
1 August 2018 | by ismaelslgdSee all my reviews

After the credits rolled, Juno had me asking myself the question I don't ask too often, "why did I wait so long to watch this movie?" It is heartwarming, witty, original and unpredictable in all the right ways. The film broke many of my stereotypes about an unwanted pregnancy and all the attitudes that surround it. It was as if Diablo Cody knew my assumptions on what was going to happen or how a character would react to a situation, and then turned my assumption upside down in a satisfying and thought provoking way. This was achieved through the depth of each of the characters, and how my opinions on many of the characters changed throughout the film. While Cody plays with our assumptions on certain characters, Juno herself is pure gold from the first scene. Ellen Page does an incredible job in the lead role, taking Juno's character and witty banter in stride and holding the film together very well. The supporting characters are all memorable in their own way, and most of them win you over by the time the film is over. Props to the filmmakers and actors for really challenging and exceeding our expectations. This is easily the best independent film I have had the pleasure to watch.
