Rating: 15
Genre: Drama, Romance

IMDb Plot Synopsis: Ryan Bingham is a corporate downsizing expert whose cherished life on the road is threatened just as he is on the cusp of reaching ten million frequent flyer miles and just after he's met the frequent-traveler woman of his dreams.

My Review: Up In The Air oozes style. It is outstandingly well shot; modern and sophisticated. George Clooney gives the best performance I’ve seen from him, charming and yet believable and the whole concept of the film is smart and sexy with a lovely sense of real emotion behind it. 
Anna Kendrick definitely deserved all the attention she got from this role: vulnerable, funny, determined and naive, she had it all in a look. Her Oscar nomination was hopefully a sign of things to come for her and I look forward to her future parts. 
It was a very witty, heart-warming film, terrifically well made and overall just an incredibly watchable film. 
Score: 8/10
