Juno Makes Me Happy

Lil Big Screen: Juno Wins an Award in My Book

I finally went to see the Golden Globe nominated movie Juno this weekend. Before entering the theater, I knew three things; it was a comedy with a great cast and the main character was a pregnant teenager.

Not only did I love the movie, but also the cast was outstanding. Break through actress Ellen Page made me fall in love with her character. I am bummed that the film didn't win Best Picture, but I didn't see all the movies that were nominated. To see more about my Junotastic experience,


The film was comedic genius. My husband and I already want to see it again as we missed some dialogue due to the entire audience roaring in laughter. But at times we also had tears in our eyes and fluttering hearts.

I hadn't realized that adoption would be a focus in the film and loved how they handled the topic of teenage pregnancy. While Juno's parents were shocked and appalled at her becoming pregnant, as many would be, they were also supportive. And casting the adoptive mother, Jennifer Garner, in the light they did was especially endearing to me. Since I don't want to spoil the movie for you, I will just say that it made me proud to be a mother.

Leaving the film, I wondered how many kids would be able to do what Juno did. Some may say her decision was brave and others would argue it was stupid, but it made me wish that every unplanned pregnancy had a happy ending. Sadly, I know it was just a movie, but can't help but hope life would imitate art.

Do you think you could have pulled a Juno as a junior in high school?
