About the Movie
Ryan Bingham (Academy Award® winner* 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 and included in over 200 top 10 lists, "Up in the Air is light and dark, hilarious and tragic, bouncy and brainy, romantic and real.”*- Owen Gleiberman, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
What does human connection mean to us? Does it weigh us down or does it fill those empty spaces in our lives? Up In The Air explores both sides of the ticket and although it flirts dangerously towards the Cameron Crowe sentimentality (that only Cameron Crowe gets right) it manages to stop the travelator before we get to that safe and expected destination.
I was ready to call this movie brilliant but ultimately flawed by being totally predictable (right about the "running through the airport" scene) but then this one way trip hit a turbulent detour and I was back on board. Ryan Bingham's charm isn't enough to fill his carry-on luggage forever and the underlying sadness in the story is, in the end, what makes it soar above the standard fare.
A must for frequent flyers
A film that entertains while reminding those who travel a lot for work that there is more to life than flight attendants and hotel staff remembering your name.
Funny that I watched this movie up in the air, too :)
I travel a lot for my work and yes that's how we pack our bags.... and yes the biggest sense of achievement is those loyalty programs... hilarious, yet tragic.
I felt so lucky that I have a family to return to after the movie.
Would recommend this movie to whoever travels for work often.
