If you think you are getting too old for Love, I’d recommend a American teenager silly, sweet movie. And if you are wondering which movie could that be, let me point you towards Juno.
The Los Angeles Times describes Juno as ” hilarious and sweet-tempered, perceptive and surprisingly grounded”, and I would say well said to that. This is not a movie that will leave you thinking for days or stun you with artistic excellence, but it has its sweet moments and these will stay with you for some time.
Juno (Ellen Page) is a high school teenager who gets pregnant and the movie is about how she handles her pregnancy, gets her boyfriend back, and in this process learns and educates about commitment. The soundtrack is hummable and has some very fresh and very young songs there. I will sign off with a poignant scene between Juno and her Dad (which reminds me, I so adore her Parents in this movie):
Juno: I need to know that it is possible that two people can stay happy together forever.
Dad: It is not easy. That’s for sure. Look, in my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you. The right person is still gonna think the sunshine’s out your ass. That’s the kind of person worth sicking with.
