If you could go back to high school and be much cooler than what you were, you’d be Juno (played by Ellen Page). She gets pregnant by her friend Paulie Bleeker and tries to take care of everything herself. She’s incredibly immature and incredibly mature at the same time.
Juno decides to adopt the baby out to a middle class couple, Mark and Vanessa, played by Bateman and Garner. She has to learn very quickly about relationships, and about how to listen to her own heart.
This isn’t a typical boy meets girl rom com. Here are some young people dealing with growing up, being teenagers, and understanding boundaries.
The soundtrack is terrific (Kimya Dawson), low fi, just like the flick. This is a great film for young and old alike and has established itself as a cult classic.
