Storyline Heading
Ryan Bingham is a corporate hatchet man who loves his life on the road but is forced to fight for his job when his company downsizes its travel budget. He is required to spend more time at home just as he is on the cusp of a goal he's worked toward for years: reaching five million frequent flyer miles and just after he's met the frequent-traveler woman of his dreams.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a somewhat downbeat comedy/drama aimed at adult moviegoers. Fans of George Clooney should be pleased with this big showcase. Adult themes and language make the film inappropriate for kids (who wouldn't be interested anyhow).

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good Up in the Air is a wonderful little film (the word "little" being relative, of course). It was the best thing I saw at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival,...

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent Reitman also made the great "Juno.”...He makes smart, edgy mainstream films.

USA Today Full Review
Excellent Timeliness can be tricky to pull off convincingly in movies. It's tough to capture an era while it's still happening, yet Up in the Air does so brilliantly, with wit and humanity.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Ryan Bingham (Oscar® winner GEORGE CLOONEY) has long been contented with his unencumbered lifestyle lived out across America in airports, hotels and rental cars. He can carry all he needs in one wheel-away case; he's a pampered, elite member of every travel loyalty program in existence; and he's close to attaining his lifetime goal of 10 million frequent flier miles - and yet . . . Ryan has nothing real to hold onto.

When he falls for a simpatico fellow traveler (VERA FARMIGA), Ryan's boss (JASON BATEMAN), inspired by a young, upstart efficiency expert (ANNA KENDRICK), threatens to permanently call him in from the road. Faced with the prospect, at once terrifying and exhilarating, of being grounded, Ryan begins to contemplate what it might actually mean to have a home.
