I watched Juno a couple nights ago, and I liked it. It’s a subtle film. (Flashing spoiler alert here) It was interesting to see the psychological phenomenon of transfer on the big screen. The time that Juno wanted to spend with her teen best friend/babydaddy was the time she spent bonding with the prospective adoptive father. The adoptive father’s affection for Juno was the affection he should have had for his wife, but did not have. I’m not a complete spoiler…I won’t spill the ending here. But it was a right ending, low-key and in keeping with the rest of the film. Stepfamily dynamics were another strong suit. Perhaps my favorite outcome was that a female screenwriter (Diablo Cody) got recognition…it won Best Original Screenplay.
If you’ve seen Juno, did you like it?
