An Unexpected Hit
Oprah
 Critics and fans alike are buzzing about Juno, a hit movie about the trials and tribulations of a smart-mouthed pregnant teenager. Breakout star Ellen Page plays the 16-year-old title character, whose razor-sharp sarcasm masks a lovable vulnerability.

Juno's dad and stepmother, played by J.K. Simmons and Allison Janney, are a quirky pair who show unconditional love to Juno in her time of crisis. After weighing her options, Juno decides to give up the baby for adoption.

The search for adoptive parents leads Juno to a suburban wife—played by Jennifer Garner—desperate for a baby. Jason Bateman plays the potential daddy-to-be, a 30-something man who still holds out hope of becoming a rock star.

Director Jason Reitman, who earned accolades for the award-winning film Thank You For Smoking, brings first-time screenwriter Diablo Cody's delightfully witty script to life. With hilarious one-liners, biting wit and a whole lot of heart, Juno is the hit of the season.

"It's really special," Oprah says. "It's the movie to see this year, and it's so fresh."
