Well, it took me quite a while to catch up with the rest of the moving going public, but at least I didn’t wait until it was out on DVD (March, by the way). Thursday afternoon I skipped out on work and went to see Juno.
There was some crude language, but I know it was far milder than I would hear if I walked down the hallway of a local high school as kids were on their way to their next classes.
As a writer, I loved learning some of the slang and lingo of today’s teens. (Not that I will be able to remember it. Nor could I use it in my historicals.) I laughed often at some of the funny things Juno and her friends said.
I choked up when Juno cried after having her baby and when the adoptive mom held the baby for the first time.
I thought the characters were real and layered. A movie that sneaks up and suddenly you discover it has hold of your heart. I loved it.
Update: I was wrong about the DVD release date. It has yet to be announced.
