I'm hoping that most of you have already discovered this GEM from the end of 2007, but just in case you haven't - here is my next movie-recommendation.
Juno (Ellen Page) is a teen facing an unplanned pregnancy by her classmate Bleeker (Michael Cera). With the help of her best friend Leah, Juno finds her unborn child a “perfect” set of parents: an affluent suburban couple, Mark and Vanessa (Jason Bateman, Jennifer Garner), longing to adopt. Though she faces some tough decisions, Juno flirts with adulthood and ultimately figures out where she belongs.....
Juno is such a bundle of quirky fun and all though it is a comedy it is also incredibly moving at times!
Brilliantly directed by Jason Reitman who also directed another one of my favourite movies, "Thank you for smoking". It is intelligent, rich on witty-dialogue and sweet and Ellen Page is nothing less than FANTASTIC as pregnant teen Juno!!
In fact, Ellen Page's performance alone makes this movie worth watching ;)
..also a BIG PLUS for the adorable soundtrack.
