I laughed, I cried...


After my unconclusive experience watching Sweeney Todd in "version française," I was determined to catch Juno in English.

My daughters had both seen it here in French and had truly regretted not hearing the actors speaking "American."

So partly for this reason -- and partly for reasons much more related to shopping -- we zoomed off to Montpellier for the day for my daughters' only out-of-town outing of their two-week winter holiday. Travail oblige.

One film, two viaduct crossings, six pairs of new shoes, and twelve hours later, I can definitely say it was worth every minute.

I adored Juno.

I am looking forward to seeing this movie -- in "American," to be sure. It's in my Netflix queue... so sometime in the next decade it will percolate to the top. Or maybe I'll just have to bump it there a little sooner.

I've heard such great things about this movie. I'm happy to hear that you loved it also. I missed it in the theaters here but will definitely catch it on DVD!
