This review is from: Juno - Blu-ray (Blu-ray)
This is another "sideways " " little miss sunshine " type of movie with the real star being an unborn child. The story is very engaging and the movie goes very quickly and is worth a second viewing
A lot has been written about what Diablo Cody meant with her pro-life stance and I think it is open to the viewer's interpretation.
There are certain moments of utter brilliance in the film , the Oriental girl outside the abortion clinic and the calm and collected reaction of Juno's parents are among them.
The acting is excellent across the board but Cela is the best delivering his best performance yet.
Why not 5 stars ?
Ellen Page overacts a bit and Micheal Cera plays a perfect teenager aloof and insecure ( perhaps if her performance had matched his it would have been very different ).American teenage slang can be difficult to follow at times.
The nice house scenes can be creepy and made me cringe as I watched them.
A breath of fresh air.
