Premieres: First Look Juno

Directed by Jason Reitman

Screenwriter Diablo Cody will be on hand to take questions from the audience following the screening.

Tender and sassy with rapid-fire dialogue, this first feature film script by former City Pages writer and blogger extraordinaire Diablo Cody has been an instant hit at festivals in Telluride and Toronto, going on to win the top prize in Rome. Ellen Page is pitch-perfect in the title role as a Twin Cities teen who gallantly deals with the results of her first sexual encounter and responsibilities well beyond her years. Jason Reitman (Thank You for Smoking) directs amazing supporting performances by Michael Cera (Superbad and Arrested Development) as Juno’s sweet, thunderstruck boyfriend and Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman as the St. Cloud-based eager potential adoptive parents. 2007, 35mm, 92 minutes.
