: Ellen Page, Michael Cera : Fox Searchlight Pictures : December 5, 2007
Although this movie has a very liberal vibe, conservatives should love it. Here’s why:
• It’s funny and well done
• The young girl who gets pregnant is not portrayed as a victim of a sexual predator; quite the contrary. She’s in charge, and takes responsibility for her actions
• Despite much encouragement to do otherwise, she keeps the baby.
• It portrays a supportive family environment
• We already mentioned it’s funny and well done?
SummaryWhen she becomes unexpectedly pregnant by a guy pal, a 16-year-old girl in small-town Minnesota decides to give her baby to the “perfect” couple she locates from the classified ads, only to discover that the impending adoption is pushing them towards divorce and causing her to fall in love with the biological father of the child.
