The teenaged parents-to-be, Juno and Paulie, consider the possibility of abortion, but opt for adoption instead when they find successful couple Mark and Vanessa, potential adoptees. A thriving music-for-commercials-composer, Mark has a special eye for the preternaturally self-possesses 16-year-old Juno. Soon, he starts to complicate the adoption process when his latent macho hero dreams start manifesting in his relationship to Juno.
The film won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and earned three other Oscar nominations including Best Picture. The film's overwhelmingly positive reviews earned it a place on many critics' top ten lists.
