Ada film berbekal efek sophisticated, CGI superhalus, serta adegan eksyen superkeren yang hanya berakhir dengan selintas ingatan setelah menontonnya. Tapi, banyak juga film low budget beranggaran rendah yang terus mengendap diotak. Kuncinya, ada pada kualitas skenario yang diukir sedemikian cantiknya.

Saya kenal Sideways, Little Miss Sunshine, dan yang (baru) saya tonton semalam, Juno. Film ini begitu asyiknya bercerita lewat skenario yang kocak dan karakter-karakternya yang apik. Oh ya, selain tag “part time boyfriend, full time friend”, adegan yang saya ingat adalah saat Juno menjumpai ayahnya dalam keadaan kecewa.

Ini karena pasangan yang akan menerima bayinya, Mark dan Vanessa Loring, yang dikiranya serbasempurna justru berada di puncak konflik hubungan mereka. “I just need to know if it’s possible for two people to stay happy together forever, or at least for a few years,” kata Juno desperately kepada ayahnya.

“It’s not easy, that’s for sure. Now, I may not have the best track record in the world, but I have been with your stepmother for 10 years now and I’m proud to say that we’re very happy” sahut si ayah.

“In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person will still think the sun shines out your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with,” tambahnya. haha.

Well, pesan moralnya mungkin, tidak ada pasangan yang benar-benar sempurna. Yang terbaik, justru pasangan yang bisa mengerti dan menerima diri kita apa adanya. Seperti Mark dan Vannessa yang kelihatan seperti pasangan ideal, sama-sama cantik dan tampan, sama-sama sukses dan kaya. Tapi dibalik itu, mereka sama-sama punya issue. Vannessa yang begitu berambisi punya anak dan mengidamkan hidup serbasempurna, dan Mark, yang ternyata masih “childish” dan merasa berada dibawah bayang-bayang Vanessa. oh well.

  1. hahhaha. in that case, ini line yang paling gw suka.

    Juno MacGuff: I think I’m in love with you.
    Paulie Bleeker: You mean as friends?
    Juno MacGuff: No… I mean for real. ‘Cause you’re, like, the coolest person I’ve ever met, and you don’t even have to try, you know…
    Paulie Bleeker: I try really hard, actually.

    1. Jared shout out for Campus Life! Yeah! I totally agree with why you liked it. It all comes down to cotexnt. With my Campus Life kids I would have LOVED this movie. I would have taken a couple kids (either one or two for more intimate conversations- me taking a guy or two and my female volunteers taking a girl or two) and then sit with them over french fries afterwards and talk about it.But it’s funny as a parent who does have control of what my kids watch, I’m not letting my kids (especially my 10 and 12 year old) see the film. My 14 year old is about to turn 15 (tomorrow actually) and if he asked I’d probably watch it with him, go to lunch and disect it with him.Hope that helps.
