Movie Recommendation: Juno

1

The 2007 comedy-drama film Juno won the Academy Award for Best Screenplay and the Marco Aurelio International Rome Film Festival as Best Movie. In essence, you have to see it!

Juno is a promising movie directed by Jason Reitman, son of the great Ivan Reitman, director of such films as “Ghostbusters – Ghostbusters I and II, Fathers’, evolution.” The screenplay is written by Diablo Cody, a former stripper, who won the Oscar for this film!

Juno is a teenage girl who became pregnant after her first sexual relationship with Paulie, played by Michael Cera (Year 1, Superbad). After several recommendations and consultation with Paulie, along with her parents and her best friend, she initially thought of having an abortion, but then changes her mind and decides to give the baby up for adoption.

With her ​​friend and with the support of her father, she found a family willing to take care of the “bean” as she calls it. The story “thickens” when she knows the adoptive father of her future child, Mark, with whom she shares an interest in music, and his wife, Vanessa. Juno begins to frequent the house of the adoptive parents and start a friendship with Mark, up to have a slow dancing together.

I will stop now, or there will be no more surprises for you.

Juno is a beautiful movie that shows the difficulties of a young teenage mother, addressing issues such as abortion, the betrayal, the eternal question (“but, we can love forever?”) and adolescents that grow up fast—all in a youthful way, without transforming this film into a heavy one. Accompanied by such a great soundtrack, the film grossed lots of money.

PS: The Actor Michael Cera appears to be also an avid lomographer, attacked “by an umbilical cord” with its fantastic Horizon Kompakt! Have a look here!

In this movie he is with two actors of Suxxxbad!

The movie ends with a beautiful duet between Michael and Ellen, who sing “Anyone Else But You,” as two normal teenagers in love!

In love with movies? Well, try to be a director with the amazing LomoKino!

    Shake well and apply to fabric. Blot out excess using a paper towel. Create your design using Inkofilm or anything that casts a shadow. Expose to sunlight or bright UV light for 10-20 minutes or until color reaches full saturation. Machine wash using Inkowash to remove unexposed dye. Double your exposure time in overcast weather. Enjoy the "wow" result!

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
