Up In The Air is a film directed by Jason Reitman (Juno) and written byReitman and Sheldon Turner. It stars George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick and Jason Bateman.

Up In The Air is a story about a man, named Ryan, who flies all around the country firing people for companies who do not want to do it themselves. Ryan is happy with his life and finds little need for relationships. Enter Natalie, a young woman who has designed a system that allows Ryan's company to fire people online through video. Its up to Ryan to show his company and Natalie why this would be a mistake. In between all this Ryan has met a woman who could give new meaning to his life.

Up In The Air, nominated for 6 Oscars including best picture, is a cute romantic comedy that has a bit of an unexpected ending. I enjoyed this movie. Clooney, Farmiga and Kendrick all do a nice job. I like some of the songs in the movie but the selection could have been much better. Music is done by some lesser known people but includes some music by Woody Guthrie and David Crosby.

Up in the Air is rated R because of language and some sexual content.
