Podcast on JUNO

The "big hit" of the indie film season has been JUNO. Aside from the heartfelt performances, and screenplay, it also elicits the following Podcast commentary, a conversation with Caitlin Flanagan, author of "The Hell With All That", about the movie and teenage pregnancy. Hosted by David Shipley, deputy editorial page editor and Op-Ed editor at the New York Times.

The star, Ellen Page, all of 5'2", who has been acting since she was 10, and who turns 21 in February, plays a teenager who becomes pregnant. Of course, getting pregnant happens the same as it always has, but the umm, outcome, is less predictable.

Page has been nominated for a slew of performance awards along with the film.
