I can’t believe I bailed out on a free pass to see the screening of this film and was willing to forget all about it. Little that I know … this film became my favorite of the month. It could even possibly be the greatest for the next months to come. Juno is a witty-teeny young girl who became the victim of her own burning desires; a time when we all begin to discover the attraction of the other sex.

Juno was clearly not ready to have this baby. She knew it the day she conceived it. So, she decided to give the baby for adoption.

One thing that I like to find in a film is the dialogs. There are only a few hand of films that I can say meet the standard of “unique,” not necessarily different but something that one can really relate to. That connection could be an exact imitation of some people around us or simply the fact that their conversation is unbearably true. To name a few, take for example Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill I & II and Coffee and Ciggarettes by Jim Jarmusch these films are known for how real the characters try to communicate (to you). Things are said in a subtle, direct, and possibly the way you would say things in your mundane life. In the film Juno, you do get the same feeling. Its truth and insincerity of her language is certainly one of a kind. Juno is that type of friend that everyone would fall for …

Go see it!
