Director Jason Reitman steps out of dad’s shadow

Director Jason Reitman knew life changed when his first movie "Thank You for Smoking" was a hit. Not because of reviews or box office success but because his father, director Ivan Reitman, began asking for advice.

The younger Reitman, 30, sees his second low-budget comedy, "Juno," open in U.S. theaters on Wednesday after becoming a darling at festivals. Last week it earned four independent Spirit Award nominations, including a bid for best film.
