Up in the Air (Jason Reitman – 2009) A

The premise of this movie is both boring and depressing. We are talking about a guy who fires people for a living and flies a lot. A whole lot. Matter of fact his goal in life is to reach the 10 million mile mark on American Airlines (only six others can claim that honor). However, cast George Clooney to play that guy and introduce a new protege and a “love interest” in a tight, detail-focused and sharp script and you have a very engaging charatcer study. Everyone in this film is pitch perfect, from Clooney to Vera Farmiga, Jason Bateman and J.K Simmons.
