Every year, the Oscars have an outsider among its nominees and this season is no exception. Juno is a nice little romantic comedy about teenage pregnancy and family-life in the american suburbs, a movie that doesn't have too much artistic or cinematic ambitions except for being fresh and clever entertainment. But among its many attributes, two things take it apart from your usual teenage comedies. For a start, we have great interpretations from all actors involved, with a special mention to Ellen Page in the lead role. And then there's the fabulous script, full of smart punchlines, pop cultural references, touching situations and characters that are impossible not to like, making Juno a movie that easily wins our hearts.
