'A fiction with irresistible charm and wit' said Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian in a five-star review. Some have been more cautious, especially since this is the latest in a recent spate of American movies that greet unexpected pregnancy by ducking the abortion issue. Nevertheless most viewers have been charmed and indeed uplifted by Ellen Page's portrayal of a 16-year-old with panache and a snappy gift for dialogue (winning newcomer Diablo Cody the 2008 Oscar for best screenplay), as the young woman meets the uptight potential adoptees of her unborn baby and learns about power, sexuality and the hypocrisies of the adult world. Jason Reitman was close to winning the Best Director Oscar for this a few weeks ago.
