Book of the Still

I hardly ever make it to the cinema these days

Went to see Juno at the weekend, which IMO at least, lived up to the hype (surprising, given how much of it there was). It did an excellent job of making all the characters real, with lives beyond this particular story, and the dialogue really was that good (I am a sucker for that sort of hyper-realistic teen speak). I'm vaguely aware that there's all sorts of political debate around the film's handling of its Controversial Subject Matter, but I don't think I know enough about the American context to comment sensibly.

What I wasn't expecting was to see Collapse )
