"Someone's going to get a special blessing from Jesus in this garbage dump of a situation." Juno's step mom is deadpan after hearing the teen's pregnancy announcement. Juno takes risks in choosing to have the baby and then choosing to give it up for adoption, but ultimately she chooses to take a risk on love in an uncertain world. This guide will help you discuss some of the themes of Juno: life is valuable; terrible situations can be redeemed; real love is unconditional; and avoiding the path of least resistance is risky but satisfying.
