Saw Juno the other night and it's just as charming, engaging and amusing as the critics have said. The virtue of the movie is that it depicts believably real people doing believable things in believable ways and does not judge them. If there is any evil in this story it's the meanness and prejudice of everyday life. Juno is more self-possessed than any 16 year old I've ever met and is wittier than most standup comics but this is art and who wants to listen to people being boring. Definitely worth a trip to the theater to see a story about kindness and good sense if not triumphing, at least getting by.
