30 Film Females: Juno (2007)

Filed under: 30 Film Females — ootastic @ 10:38 am

Juno is one of those films – like Knocked Up and Waitress – that were released during my early thirties when I was trying but failing to get pregnant (regular readers may know I now have a 1 year old son).  However, I was won over by the title character’s determination and witty dialogue, as portrayed by the impish Ellen Page and written by the Oscar-winning Diablo Cody.

So, onto the drawing.  In a sleep-deprived fug, I initially mistook the Roman goddess Juno for the two-faced god Janus.  However, I realised that this could represent a typically inward-looking teenager, or even perhaps an expectant mother communing with her foetus.  Also, Ellen Page has a distinctive profile which hopefully works with the the simple black and white graphic.  And not forgetting the ornamental urn belonging to Juno’s step-mom (Allison Janney again) into which some blue slushie is regurgitated!  I originally drew the whole image but will flipped one half after scanning to make it symmetrical.  I realise I’ve just written about two teen movies in a row (even if they may not get published in that order), so now feel it’s time to go old school.

Honourable mentions for 2007: Helena Bonham-Carter singing her socks off as the pie-maker Mrs Lovett off in Sweeney Todd.  Rose Byrne and Michelle Yeoh as rare female movie scientists on a space mission in Danny Boyle’s Sunshine.
