Juno

LeeElla and I saw this last weekend. I loved it. Yes, it's about a teen that gets pregnant and all that comes with that is in it...typical teen life. But the themes that were dealt with in this movie were brilliantly handled. Abortion, adoption, marriage, maturity, friendship, blended family issues, divorce and the prospect of real love. This is a movie that emerges out of a postmodern reality. It's our world. This is where we live today. It's a honest look at the complexity and hope of finding something true in the midst of all the chaos. I laughed so many times.
When the father said He wanted to punch the boy father in the wennie...I died. Been there.
