Many movies try to tackle teen problems but in my opinion, Juno presents it the best. The dilemma of a teenager's life was beautifully played out by a relatively unknown cast (certainly not cashing in on big teen names) such as Michael Cera and Ellen Page. Page is not only unbelievably cute, she has this mature aura around her character. You can really see character development in this movie, and though relatively low-budget (a mere $8 million), it has gone on to become a $224 million hit.
I love the way the story progresses and how the characters developed with it. It was really good. I can't even describe it. You just know it when you see a good and original storyline, with excellent character development. I keep repeating that. LOL. That's because that for me, was what made Juno such a good movie. Even the soundtracks complemented the plot really well.
To the writers, directors, producers, cast, and all involved with Juno, you guys are pwnage. You proved that fresh and great flicks do not have to rely on heavy budgets and stellar cast (it has Jennifer Garner though, but her role was pretty meek. To her credit, she still played it well).
For an original storyline, tender scenes, street smart lines, spectacular character development, and excellent plot sequence, Juno, you are one of the best movies I have ever seen.
