2012 in Film: #58

Juno (2006) | Directed by Jason Reitman

Grade: B+

Thoughts: Diablo Cody’s, erm, interesting jargon is extremely grating for the first fifteen minutes or so of the film, but as Ellen Page’s nuanced character begins to realize the enormity of her situation, the language, as do the characters, tone it back a bit to give more vulnerable performances. JK Simmons and Alison Janney, as Juno’s parents, give the best performances, with every line totally amusing. Jennifer Garner is surprisingly moving in the film.
