This is sort of an add-on to my comments on "Inception," but it's different enough that I thought I'd put it in a post instead of a comment about the earlier thread.
I still haven't seen "Juno" (yes, I'm sure that's to my own discredit), but there's no doubt in my mind that Ellen Page has that undefinable "something" - whether you call it charisma, or personality, or what, I don't know - that separates the great ones from the rest.
Even in her 30-second spots for Cisco, where she's just playing herself, her vibrancy jumps off the screen. That may sound silly, but I really believe it to be true.
People are going to be talking about Ellen Page for a long, long time.
