Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) is truly living the high life. Flying all over the world on business, he never stops moving until he meets Alex, a fellow passenger and learns that life isn't about the journey, but the connections we make along the way. Acclaimed by critics and audiences everywhere, Up In The Air is light and dark, hilarious and tragic, bouncy and brainy, romantic and real.
Having chosen this film as it had been Oscar nominated I suppose I could say that I was disappointed. Clooney is good, but the has a depressing existence throughout the film, which although it is touched on, he didn't have a big enough epiphany for me. Great aerial shots of the US in this, although the story lacks a bit of depth.
