The word 'quirky' has become the quick and easy way to describe films such as 'Little Miss Sunshine' and 'Lars and the Real Girl' that straddle the lines between indie and studio films and comedy and drama. While 'Juno' fits into that same category, this distinctive dramedy is in a class all its own. Ellen Page ('Hard Candy') stars as Juno, a witty teenage girl whose boredom doesn't lead her to the mall. Instead, she makes a one-time trip into the arms of her best friend Paulie Bleeker (Michael Cera, 'Superbad'). When Juno discovers that she's pregnant, she's forced to grow up fast as she tries to find adoptive parents for her quickly growing child.

'Juno' might have a lot of strengths - Page's award-worthy performance, a pitch-perfect soundtrack, excellent direction from Jason Reitman - but it's the screenwriting debut of writer Cody Diablo that makes this such a winning film. Famous for her blog and her book 'Candy Girl - A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper', Diablo has a unique voice and an incredible ear for dialogue that led to her winning a Bafta and an Academy Award for 'Juno's script. But even the nearly perfect script wouldn't sound so good if it weren't for the talents of these actors, particularly Page. She won rave reviews for her first major role in 'Hard Candy', but this performance proves it wasn't a fluke. The rest of the cast, especially J.K. Simmons as Juno's dad, is just as worthy of attention. 'Juno' continues Cera's cinematic ascent after his success with the hit comedy 'Superbad', and his 'Arrested Development' co-star Jason Bateman uses his dry delivery to great effect as a potential parent for Juno's baby.

When she becomes unexpectedly pregnant Juno (Ellen Page), a 16-year-old girl in small-town Minnesota, decides to give her baby to the "perfect" couple she locates from the classified ads, only to discover that the impending adoption is pushing them towards divorce and causing her to fall in love with the biological father of the child (Michael Cera).

Ellen Page (HARD CANDY) and Michael Cera (SUPERBAD) play high school friends faced with the perils of pregnancy in this dramedy from Jason Reitman (THANK YOU FOR SMOKING). J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney play the mother-to-be's mom and dad, while Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner co-star as eager adoptive parents.

Movie Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle - 10.0/10 by David Wiegand A confluence of perfection in every aspect of the film.
Premiere - 7.5/10 by Glenn Kenny If a woman had not in fact certifiably written the picture, I might have thought that Lester Bangs had come back from the dead to pen an account of the teen years of his ideal mate.
The New York Times - 9.0/10 by A.O. Scott Juno respects the idiosyncrasies of its characters rather than exaggerating them or holding them up for ridicule.
Variety - 8.0/10 by Todd McCarthy An ultra-smart-mouthed comedy about a planned adoption that goes weirdly awry.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10.0/10 by Roger Ebert A fresh, quirky, unusually intelligent comedy.
Time - 8.0/10 by Richard Schickel Juno is not a great movie; it does not have aspirations in that direction. But it is, in its little way, a truthful, engaging and welcome entertainment.
Portland Oregonian - 8.3/10 by M. E. Russell A funny and sincere indie about what happens when an acerbic teen finds herself "in a fat suit I can't take off."
Philadelphia Inquirer - 8.8/10 by Carrie Rickey Like its heroine, the film's glib - and sometimes sidesplittingly funny - patter at first diverts viewers from its poignant insights. Happily, as Juno grows in experience and maturity, so does the film.

Little Miss Sunshine

Little Miss Sunshine (2006) Little Miss Sunshine is a brazenly satirical and yet deeply human American road comedy. The film introduces audiences to one of the most endearingly fractured families in recent cinema history: the Hoovers, whose trip to a pre-pubescent beauty pageant results not only in comic mayhem but in death, transformation and a moving look at the surprising rewards of being losers in a winning-crazed culture. A runaway hit at the Sundance Film Festival, where it played to standing ovations, the film strikes a nerve with everyone who's ever been awestruck by how their muddled families seem to make it after all.

The Promotion

The Promotion (2008) Living the American Dream, happily married Doug Stauber’s professional ambitions are about to be realised when his boss at the Chicago supermarket chain where he works assures him he's a shoo-in to manage a new neighbourhood store...

Soon their professional competition explodes as the two men brave the corporate and psychological tests in their lust for the dream promotion to supermarket store manager! Two guys. One job. No rules!

The Switch
