Juno Rating: 12 11+
- 92 mins
The low-budget movie that instantly became one of the best-loved films around. Packed with hilarious one-liners, it tells the story of Juno MacGuff - a smart, independent 16-year-old, whose life is changed forever when she realises she's pregnant by a boy at her school who has long nursed a crush on her. Eventually, Juno decides that the baby should be adopted by a "real" couple who can give him or her everything they're going to need. But life is never that simple, especially when you're having to take another life into account as well. Although young actress Ellen Page is fantastic as Juno herself, many fans feel that the movie's script, with its big heart and endless great lines, is as much the film's real star as any of the actors. Either way, the result is a treat.
PLEASE BE AWARE: After ordering Juno the disc you will receive will be marked as being a 15 certificate - however, this relates to the extra features on the DVD and not the film itself, which is certified with the BBFC as a 12.
Into Film has consulted the BBFC, and their guidance is that as long as a club leader screens only the film (and not additional features or audio commentaries etc), Juno can be treated as a 12 certificate in a school setting.
