Caitlin Moran Will Introduce!

(2007) dir Jason Reitman w/Ellen Page, Michael Cera, Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman, Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons, Olivia Thirlby, Rainn Wilson [96 min; DCP]
Talk about inspiring… screenwriter Diablo Cody won an Academy Award right out of the gate with this, her first screenplay. The film introduces us to Juno (Page), a teenager who is faced with an unexpected pregnancy after a one-time encounter with her best friend Paulie (Cera). The film is both a character portrait of the acerbic but still vulnerable Juno and a celebration of a woman’s right to choice – whether that be keeping a baby, giving it up for adoption, or getting an abortion. We’re doubly excited that acclaimed columnist and author Caitlin Moran has selected this film to introduce after a Harvard Book Store reading for her new novel, How to Be Famous.
