i'm a planet

I have watched Juno a few times over the last couple of weeks and each time I see this scene, I find it so touching and oddly powerful. The acting and dialogue kind of sums up the innate, biological inequity between men and women. Even in this case, where the guy is incredibly sweet and the girl is tough as nails, she is forced to carry the burden of their tryst. Under her sweater. Whilst he goes along with his life, as if nothing ever happened. And even though she clearly wanted that for him, she is heartbroken at the same time. And this is all portrayed with such lightness and humour. Simply perfection!
