Juno (2007) is a beautiful movie I saw last night. It’s funny without being silly. It’s dramatic without being sappy. It’s clever without being self-conscious. There’s a good reason it is nominated for 4 Academy Awards this year. A 16-year old gets pregnant. What does she do? How does she feel? Incredibly well-written. In fact, perhaps too well-written. The 16-year old lingo is deceptive. In the midst of all the jargon and slang, I felt like Juno was saying things that a teenager would not say. She’s far too articulate and clever. However, if her lines were closer to a real teen’s language, it would be a boring movie. It’s anything but boring.Juno reminded me of Napoleon Dynamite in that it is told from a quirky teenager’s perspective. Very creative. Definitely worth seeing.
