Minnesotan Cody to appear at Walker for "Juno" screening
"Juno," the film that everyone on the film scene seems to be buzzing about, has a screening at the Walker scheduled on Dec. 13, according to The City Pages. The film, which is being hailed at this year's "Little Miss Sunshine," is a snappy romantic comedy written by local screenwriter (and former City Pages columnist) Diablo Cody and is about a pregnant teenager trying to find the right parents for her child through adoption. Both Cody and the film's star, Ellen Page are receiving Oscar buzz already. Entertainment weekly has an article about the film and writes a lot about Cody's life story, which includes time working as a stripper and a name change. The article made me even more compelled to see the film, and as Cody is scheduled to appear at the Walker screening, maybe I will get in on some Q & A. Tickets are sure to sell-out.
