Giving teenage pregnancy the Hollywood treatment could have easily resulted in sickly sweet, sentimental rubbish. Instead, a sharp script and excellent lead performances backed up by a stellar supporting cast have produced a film that manages to be both pro-life and liberal. With its honest, insightful and at times hilarious dialogue, along with a simple but compelling plot, Juno is the antidote we needed to Knocked Up.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
