JUNO was recognized with an AFI AWARD as one of the most outstanding motion pictures of 2007. According to the official rationale, “deep inside JUNO is the tiny but true heartbeat of American film. Director Jason Reitman has an extraordinary control of tone, shifting sympathies and a clear respect for the fully realized characters created by screenwriter Diablo Cody. The result is a surprise in almost every scene as cliches are upended and life is celebrated at every turn. Elliot Page delivers the breakthrough performance of the year — one that embodies the comedy inherent in being a misfit and the strength that comes when facing life’s biggest challenges.” JUNO was produced by Lianne Haflon, producing discipline head at the AFI Conservatory.
