Juno Wins Best Picture At Rome Film Festival
Teen pregnancy comedy JUNO has won the top prize at the Rome Film Festival in Italy. The movie, starring Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman and Ellen Page as a Minnesota girl looking for the perfect couple to adopt her unborn baby, took home Best Film. While accepting the award, director Jason Reitman said, "This is our first trip overseas with it (Juno), so we had no idea how non-English speakers would react." Elsewhere, Chinese star Jang Wenli won the Best Actress prize for her role in Li Chun (After The Spring Comes), while Croatian Rade Serbedzija picked up Best Actor for his performance in Fugitive Pieces.
