About the Film
Nominated for numerous Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Original Screenplay, this is the story of a sweet, wise-cracking teenage girl faced with an unexpected pregnancy. Juno, played by the remarkable Ellen Page, has been blessed with parents who trust their daughter’s judgment, and a best friend who’s always willing to help out in a pinch. Juno soon comes into contact with Mark and Vanessa-an affluent suburban couple who have been unable to conceive a child of their own. This film contains more warmth and humor than any other movie this season and provides Page with a career launch that has made her an instant star.
