Juno is a new film directed by Jason Reitman from the screenplay by first-time Diablo Cody.

It tells a story of Juno MacGuff, a suburban teenager who finds herself pregnant after a brief encounter with her nerdy kind of boyfriend named Bleeker, played by Michael Cera.

Juno is played by Ellen Page, a 20-year-old Canadian actress who is really one of the breakouts of this year.

And this is a very funny, very smart, very clever and very warm comedy. Diablo Cody’s script is very sharply written, sometimes a little bit too impressed with its own cleverness and stuffing a few too many bomb modes in the mouths of its characters.

But the characters themselves are so well drawn and so well imagined and well played not only by Ellen Page and Michael Cera, but also by J. K. Simmons as Juno’s Dad, Allison Janney as her step mother, Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner as the yuppie couple who become the perspective adoptive parents of Juno’s baby.

Now this movie has some things in common with Knocked Up, Judd Apatow’s comedy hit of earlier in the year, but in a way it’s also a kind of a smart girl’s or a feminist answer to that movie, which was about male sexual anxiety. This movie insists that girls are smart and funny and also make mistakes and have trouble grappling with the demands of growing up.

And Ellen Page’s performance is really extraordinary, this girl Juno is smart, sardonic, cynical, sensitive.

All of these complicated feelings and emotions and responses wrapped up in this compact but ever-growing package. This movie’s gotten a lot of attention as it’s made its way toward theatres on the festival circuit, there’s a lot of Oscar talk. I think it may be in danger of becoming a little bit overrated, but it is a wonderfully satisfying clever sharp comedy, well worth seeking.
