The Lens of Youth: Juno (2007)
The Searching the Psyche through Cinema film series continues with Juno, a whip-smart comedy about the travails of teenage pregnancy. Ellen Page plays an independent-minded 16-year-old in search of the perfect adoptive parents for her child. As her due date nears, she learns tough lessons about relationships, love, and adulthood.
The post-film discussion will be led by psychoanalyst Bonnie Buchele, Ph.D., and KCAI painting professor Julie Farstad. The event is sponsored by the Greater Kansas City and Topeka Psychoanalytic Center and UMKC.
