My Favourite Character: Juno


Not only do I adore this movie and Ellen Page, but I think the character is the bee’s knees.

Juno is a typical bored suburban teenager who gets into a spot of bother with her best friend, Bleeker, a stringy-looking track runner who gets Juno pregnant… Or how she says “I’m for shizz up the spout”

Despite the tragic circumstances of the sixteen year old, she is so up beat and totally hilarious with her choice of language.

“Quiet, Banana. Hey, shut your gob, okay” (to the barking dog)
“Silencio old man! I just drank my weight in Sunny D. and I have to go, pronto.”
“I’m already pregnant, what other shenanigans could I get into?”
“I thought I might, you know, nip it in the bud before it gets worse. Because I heard in health class that pregnancy often results in an infant.”

Ajuno1nd many more genus lines – obviously thanks to the brains behind this character, Diablo Cody.

I love Juno because of her confidence, her boyish style and sense of humour in everything, even when “dealing with stuff way beyond [her] maturity level”. It is literally impossible not to respond to people without Juno’s sarcasm after watching this movie.

She is inspirational because makes every bad thing seem like it’s no big deal.

And if anybody knows where to get brown tartan Chucks, let me know. They look wicked.
