Ellen Page is Juno, which comes out on DVD today. (Fox Searchlight)
By Candace Kavanagh
We have reached a sad state in comedy and in Hollywood overall, when a feminist like me can't find one woman who can command a film all by herself without the help of a male co-star or some clingy clothes. But now I see a light in this chauvinistic cave. Yes and it is a bright light, and it's name is Ellen Page. Page can currently be seen in theaters in Smart People and in the DVD release today of last year's Juno .

Great review, I totally agree with you on the X-Men 3 detested list even if Ellen Page was in it. I really liked seeing Ellen Page in Hard Candy more than Juno. Juno was great but i think Hard Candy really showed a more mature Ellen Page. The soundtrack for Juno was bomb diggity. Well written review.

Great piece Candace. I'm looking forward to seeing American Crime, we should go together.

Hard candy was the fist movie I had ever seen with Ellen in it - woah! She has certainly sprung to life in other films since then!

I couldn't agree more it is so refreshing to see a young girl on screen that has so much presence.

I agree with you on the brilliance of Ellen Page. She truly is a remarkable actress and a very talented one at that. I loved her role played in Juno, especially. Ellen did an excellent job of portaying the role of a pregnant teenager. I also like how the movie was not all about sex. It was focused on friendship and maturity. Although I have only seen a few films of Ellen Page, I plan on renting out more movies with her in them.
