juno


We finally saw it this afternoon. It's so funny and so touching. So well done. I want to go see it again! The soundtrack is great.
I have a headache and I can't think of anything more to say. Go see it.

I haven't heard of it, is it a new movie?

Thanks for the Noonan article-those Clintons are infuriating (sp?).

My oldest kids got cookbooks from Santa. I read your post earlier today and then my daughter and I made homemade tomato soup-I couldn't get it out of my mind.

This is on our list of things to do before the baby is born. I hope we can make it one of these next weekends.

Gabriela, Juno came out a couple months ago, I think. It has been Oscar-nominated for best picture, best director, best actress, and best screenplay. It's about a 16-yr-old girl who gets pregnant and finds an ad for an adoptive couple in the SuperSaver. The setting is here in Minnesota, though I believe it was filmed in Canada.

Ellen Page was incredible as the 16-yr-old Juno, but I was equally impressed by the other performances. I loved Jennifer Garner as the adoptive mom-to-be. She kept making me cry.

Yes, this movie did make me cry. Sometimes because it was a little sad, but more often because it was poignant. It was really funny, too. There are tons of hilarious lines. I bet I could watch it over and over. And there are very few movies I'd want to see even twice.

Interesing. I'd read about it and heard the buzz, but thought, "eh". Now, I'll put it on my list of ones to look for~
