JUNO: A Case Study In Narrative, Representation And Genre

PLEASE NOTE: This event will also take place at FACT in Liverpool on Mon 27 October. Please contact FACT to book.

Recommended for AS Film, AS Media and equivalent.

Capacity: 158 places

One of the most popular films of early 2008 offers an intriguing example of a particular kind of youth picture – a ‘smart film’. The event, which includes a full screening of JUNO, will be suitable for AS Film and Media students developing their ideas about key concepts such as narrative, genre and representation. It will also introduce the concept of the ‘crossover’ independent film which generated large box office revenues. Can a critical analysis explain this success?

Led by Roy Stafford, Freelance Film Lecturer.

Screening: JUNO 12A

JUNO has proved a massive hit across the US with its story of pregnant teen Juno, played brilliantly by Ellen Page, who decides on adoption over abortion – as long as she controls the process.
