JUNO (2007) The story of “Juno” is familiar: a teenage girl has sex one time and becomes pregnant. But Juno (Ellen Page) is not your average high schooler. Taking matters into her own hands, she explores her various options before telling her parents (J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney) of her condition. Juno then proceeds, with her parents’ and friends’ help, to manage her life. Her stepmother deals with the ultrasound technician (ecografo). Her father takes her to meet the prospective adoptive parents. Of course, things don’t always go as planned but throughout the nine months gestation of her child, Juno confronts life on her own, unique terms.

As you certainly know, keep in mind that Kuno was the Roman Goddess of childbirth and marriage.
The SOUNDTRACK is great ranging from Lou Reed, David Bowie, Courtney Love, The Kinks, Sonic Youth, to Kimya Dawson.

The website RottenTomatoes says Juno is “One of the brightest, funniest comedies of the year, Juno’s smart script and direction are matched by assured performances in a coming of age story with a 21st century twist.”I guess you’ll like it!
