Juno

I just finished watching Juno with my sister. Okay, not 'just', it was an hour ago. And yes, I know I'm two years behind the times.

But it is an utterly amazing movie. Funny, yet poignant (did I spell that right?), and it's the first movie I've ever seen with a smart, self-aware, and not utterly helpless main character. See my previous thoughts on that subject here.

It's also eminently quotable ("Yo yo yiggity yo" is my greeting for a while), and I love the songs. I also love the opening sequence - Juno (Ellen Page) walking through her town, with everything but her drawn as simple line drawings.
