Guys,just watched Geogre Clooney’s latest UP IN THE AIR…..A Satire on American companies in the time of recession…
Storyline:With a job that has him traveling around the country firing people, Ryan Bingham( Clooney) leads an empty life out of a suitcase, until his company does the unexpected: ground him.On his way he falls in love with a fellow traveller which turns his life upside down…
First of all,hats-off to Director Jason Reitman for making a “witty”,”emotional” and “full of life” drama on such a depressing topic…
Strong performances by the two beautiful ladies(Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick) might just be enough to get them a Oscar!!!
And about George Clooney…Well he is perfect !!
e fits into his role comfortably and has excellent comic timing.
Incidentally, Clooney is in a role that must have hit home. “You don’t want to get married?” his character is asked, and his reply is the same as Clooney’s always is: “Nope”…
Truly,he is like a “bottle of wine”…he keeps getting better with his age
The dialogues throughout the movie are fast, funny and they have a soul.
A special mention to the music score…It’s magical!!!
Favourite Scene:When an Air-Hostess offers Clooney a “CANCER”…Trust me,it’s damn funny!!!
Watch it for:
1.Clooney’s effortless performance
2.Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick’s strong headed performances
3.Beautiful locations across USA…you will fall in love with the cinematography!!!
Overall Rating :9/10…or 4.5 Stars…
Guys,Up In The Air is a well-written,well directed and a well acted movie…It’s a rare gem…And is a strong contender for the Oscar…
Don’t miss it!!!
Go watch it!!!
