Another Post About “Juno”

I saw Juno again last night.

And I went from liking it to loving it. It really is something special… and I’m not going to complain about Paste magazine picking it as their #1 movie of the year. It’s not my #1 movie of the year, but it deserves a big audience and a heap of praise. It’s the best thing showing at the multiplex this weekend. It’s not for kids, but for discerning adults, it’s a surprisingly tender-hearted comedy about teen pregnancy, family, true love, and orange Tic-Tacs.

Here’s the review I posted yesterday.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    I hope it gets a wide release soon because it’s not showing anywhere near me…

    The whole concept of limited release ticks me off many times during the holiday movie season.
