Too often when a movie is hyped I'm disappointed when I finally see it. I was delighted to find that this wasn't the case with Juno, a smart film that deals with teen pregnancy with realism, humor, and poignance. The pregnant teen, Juno, played wihtout a false note by Ellen Page, is supported by a terrific cast. I particularly liked Allison Janney, who plays Juno's step-mother with a credible mix of frustration, disapproval, and family loyalty.
It's the kind of movie I'lll watch again.
