Review: Up In The Air

"Isolated? I'm Surrounded!"

Up In The Air is Juno director Jason Reitman's latest attempt at seizing the award season.

Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) flys from city to city firing people for other companies. That's his job. Also mixing in public speaking here and there, Ryan's life is simple. He enjoys being on the road most of the year and doesn't enjoy the normal lives we all lead.

Without spoiling anything Up In The Air takes two stories in Ryan's life and merges them in the end. He has his goals (Namely his frequent flyer miles) and it's only till he meets Alex (Vera Farminga) that he gets the sense of company.

The films main sterling performance comes from Twilight's Anna Kendrick. Kendrick plays Natalie, one of Ryans newest work colleagues and I gotta say, in the race for Best Supporting Actress, Kendrick wins it by a mile. (Or 10 Million)

Up In The Air is funny, dramatic and charming. It's a truly solid film and I recommend you go and see it.


Vera Farminga definatly set a bench mark for "Most Innovative Way To Wear A Tie"
