3. Relationships- Stefanie Celebicanin

3.1. Juno and her Father

3.1.1. Throughout the film Juno and her father share a rather strange child-parent relationship. They have both been through the heartbreak of their mother/wife dying and their banter is their way of dealing with their hurt. Juno's father was always there for her and recognised that Juno was intelligent so he accepted the decisions she made in her life, even though he wasn't too happy when he found out that she was pregnant at such a young age.

3.2. Juno and Paulie Bleeker

3.2.1. During the film Juno finds out that she was pregnant from a one-time sexual encounter with her best friend, Paulie Bleeker. Juno and Paulie both liked each other, although never considered themselves to be exclusive an boyfriend/girlfriend couple. They were definitely not ready to be a family and raise a child. They had a rocky relationship whilst Juno was pregnant although after a deep and meaningful conversation with her dad Juno decided that Paulie was the right guy for her and that she really loved him and wanted to be with him. By the end of the film Juno gave her baby up for adoption and her relationship with Paulie develops and becomes exclusive.

3.3. Mark And Vanessa

3.3.1. Mark and Vanessa were the potential adoptive parents for Juno's baby. At first their relationship seems like it's going well and Mark appears to be more open and relaxed whereas Vanessa seemed more insecure and anxious although as the film progresses we come to realise that they are totally different and they show their true colours. Mark got cold feet and decided he didn't want to be with Vanessa let alone adopt the baby.In the end it was clear that their relationship had failed and they were not right for each other but Vanessa was driven and still decided to adopt Juno's baby when it was born because that's what made her happy and what she really wanted to do.

4. Prioritize Ideas

4.1. High Priority

4.2. Medium Priority

4.3. Low Priority

5. Production Elements-Felicity Welsh

5.1. The way Juno acts and her language choices also suggest that she is not mature enough to raise a kid. Her personality is laid back and too chilled out to even think about becoming a mother. The layout of Juno’s homes also shows that she could not raise a child, as it is small, squishy and not child friendly.
