From Jason Reitman, the Oscar® nominated director of “Juno,” comes a comedy called “Up in the Air” starring Oscar® winner George Clooney as Ryan Bingham, 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.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Up in the Air is so funny, so consistently surprising and so emotionally in-touch that it could have only been crafted by one of the most soulful directors working today.Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, 04.03.2011
By far Reitman's most accomplished film to date, both in terms of craft and its stealth avoidance of typical Hollywood flight patterns...Scott Foundas, Film Comment Magazine, 06.28.2013
The film, written by Reitman and Sheldon Turner, is consistently entertaining, though it coasts through a long middle and towards the end threatens to take a nose-dive into sentimentality.Anthony Quinn, Independent, 06.24.2010
A brilliantly accomplished feat of self-contradiction. We have our cake, or candy box, and eat it.Nigel Andrews, Financial Times, 06.24.2010
