Juno (2007)


I take a lot of flack from my aforementioned TV-addict pals because of my intolerance for weak films. One friend theorizes that watching loads of crap helps him appreciate even more those films that do occasionally break through the mire. I say that great movies can shine without the base alloy of mediocrity.

On that note, everyone should go see Juno right now. I was hooked from the incredibly twee musical opening, and drawn in even further by the sharp dialogue. Then it got better: Ellen Page? Michael Cera? JK Simmons and Alison Janney?! There isn’t a wrong note or anything less than a stellar performance from all involved. Best of all, the sublime script was penned by a first-timer. Chew on that, striking writers!
