Your Internet Celebrity Movie Review — Up in the Air (2009)
Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) racks up miles flying around the country firing employees on behalf of companies. But he faces losing the job he savors to recent college grad Natalie Keener (Anna Kendrick) — and losing the ability to escape emotional ties to anything. A connection he builds with Alex Goran (Vera Farmiga), however, might change his outlook on the future. Golden Globe winner Jason Reitman’s smart comedy also stars Jason Bateman.
I really liked this movie. There were some funny lines where I did laugh like when George Clooney was stereotyping people at the airport. It was also sad seeing people losing their jobs. It was a good mix. This was a good fit for me as I have done quite a few trips where I did live out of a suitcase. I am curious about the underlying message in this. Is it better to be attached or detached from other people in our lives? I am giving this one 4 stars.
