Juno


I saw Juno last night.

I can't remember feeling so pleased with a movie since I saw Garden State a few years ago.

This movie is beautiful and brilliant. It doesn't try to do too much, which could have easily been its downfall. It speaks to a generation which really isn't my own, granted, but it also transcends that generational focus powerfully. I'm really looking forward to a second viewing. On first impression, this is easily the best movie I've seen in a very long time.

I've been dying to see this film since way before it was released. I'm 99% certain I will love it too.

I saw it too and thought it was very well done. I think Miss Page deserves an Oscar for it..

We went to watch it last night but instead we opted to see water horse. I don't know how good juno is but I think water horse takes the cake. This is a move for all of you nonbelievers! P.S I have you mug on my blog....ya it's pretty dope

Austin and I LOVED this movie! It is so well done, and Ellen Page did an amazing job of portraying the character so well. It is our current all-time favorite movie.
