    Synopsis


    Up in the Air
    Jason Reitman's adaptation of the novel Up in the Air tells the story of Ryan Bingham (George Clooney), who makes his living personally handing out pink slips -- he's the top hatchet man at a company that other companies hire when they are downsizing. And since business is booming, his job keeps him on the go constantly. He flies all across the country, staying in a series of nice hotels. And although this itinerant lifestyle prevents him from having any kind of stable, regular life, this doesn't bother him in the slightest -- he's thrilled to be a boy in a traveling bubble. During one particular layover, he strikes up a conversation with Alex Goran (Vera Farmiga), a fellow savvy traveler. They bond over the ins and outs of various airlines and hotels, and quickly fall into bed. By morning, they are figuring out when their schedules will allow them to meet up again, even though they both make it clear that there are no strings attached. When Ryan arrives back in the home office, he meets no-nonsense career-oriented twentysomething Natalie Keener (Anna Kendrick), a fast-rising up-and-comer who wants to change the company's practices and save millions by having the staff fire people remotely via webcams. Furious at the thought of losing a lifestyle he's grown quite comfortable with, he convinces his boss (Jason Bateman) to let him take Natalie on a few trips so that she can learn what it's really like to fire someone. Melanie Lynskey, Danny McBride, and J.K. Simmons co-star in this Best Picture Academy Award nominee. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      George Clooney in one of his best roles as an high-flying ax-man, hired by companies in mergers to fire people. He met his match in a high-mileage (frequent flyer) companion Alex, played by Vera Farmiga. So would his travel-light, living out of a suitcase, er I mean, backpack, confirmed bachelor life style becomes blasé? Watch this depiction of a corporate-culture lifestyle, replete social-redeeming-value film to find out

      After directing "Thank You For Smoking", and "juno". Jason Reitman make s his most interesting film to date, about a professional down-sizer, who spends his life traveling. The best parts of the film are showing how quickly and efficiently he moves about the country with a lack of interest where he'll be tomorrow.

      I ordered the movie online. I appreciate the free shipping and the fact that I don't have to pick up in the store. Decent movie, but it was a little predictable. I like George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, and Anna Kendrick, so the movie had that going for them.

      I thoroughly enjoy most movies starring George Clooney but this role in particular highlights a budding profession that boomed when the job crisis began. A timely movie and fun take on troubled relationships and self-realization.

      Jason Reitman (Juno) shows off his prodigious directorial skills, yet again. The roles are portrayed skillfully, and tastefully. The cinematography is very emotive. The story is somewhat deep, yet hopeful. A nice weekend, afternoon film.
