Juno: A


Scott, Heather, Isabell, and I watched Juno ( this afternoon. Going in, I was a little concerned the movie wouldn't live up to its hype. However, this is probably one of the best movies I've seen this year. The characters were believeable and great performances. Ellen Page is great as the title character. Allison Janney was great in her supporting role and JK Simmons is is terrific as the gruff, but loving dad/grandfather.

Not sure what else to say. The movie did briefly deal with abortion, but I can't see how a pro-lifers or pro-choicers could see their depictions as good. The point of the movie seemed to be folks trying to do the right thing in a simultaneously bizarre and normal situation.
