USA 96 mins Rating: M Comedy Language: English

Engaging, frequently hilarious teen comedy with a terrific script, a wonderful cast and a delightful central performance from rising star Ellen Page.

Juno MacGuff, an articulate 16-year-old experiments with sex for the first time with Paulie with whom she was once in a band. Paulie simultaneously surrenders his virginity, or as Juno puts it, "going live". As fortune would have it, Juno immediately gets pregnant and is hurled head-long into a world of grown-up experience. This is a real challenge to her uber-cool mannerisms and attitude. Unable to express his deeply hurt and confused feelings, Paulie lets Juno do what she wants. She decides to keep the baby and find a couple for adoption. This turns out to be two yuppies - Mark and Vanessa.

Written by stripper-turned-blogger Diablo Cody, the film's razor-sharp dialogue is shared among all the characters. In fact, the witty script contains so many hilarious lines that you'll find yourself laughing out loud. Director Jason Reitman (Thank You For Smoking) applies colourful production design and a great soundtrack. The film manages to address the whole abortion vs adoption issue in a surprisingly mature way and the final scenes are surprisingly moving.
