All the characters played their part in this film but George Clooney stood out.
Focussed, clinical,calculating, good at his job he is taken unawares by a chance encounter.
This coincides with a family celebration and his steely, self-centredness begins to crack. Is he missing something? Is his life as fulfilling as he had thought? Is there room in his life for close relationships?
I will not spoil the ending but it is not plain sailing and there is a surprising twist at the end. The acting is excellent. All the nuances are there on his face.

Format: DVD
In what I thought was one of the best films of 2009, George Clooney plays Ryan Bingham, a corporate downsizer who travels the country firing employees whose bosses are too cowardly to terminate in person. He has a sideline as a motivational speaker, extolling the virtues of a lifestyle free of relationship or dependency, but his real interest is the accumulation of frequent flyer miles (one of the delights of the story is the contrast between his fierce adherence to the airline's loyalty scheme and the way in which he's rewarding the loyalty of the people he's seeing every day).

The part is written so well, and Clooney is such a good actor, that you start out feeling that Bingham's life is one worthy of emulation (there's a classic early scene - set to a soundtrack item called "Security Ballet" - in which he manages to make the debilitating and degrading process of going through airport security appear cool, poised and sexy). Having drawn you in to the story so completely, you're then reminded of the flaws in his choices through his encounters with the youthful, optimistic Natalie, the bold, mysterious Alex and his semi-estranged family. Ryan's not a bad man, just a mistaken one - and the way in which we stay with him as his initial dedication to an attachment-free life is shaken is proof of Clooney's sympathetic portrayal of this unpromising character. This is a great film: funny, engaging and subtly beguiling, centred on a terrifically stylish performance by Clooney and able support from Vera Farmiga's Alex and Anna Kendrick's Natalie.

Format: DVD
A professional downsizer enjoys his Club Class, air-mile lifestyle until a female fellow-traveller and thrusting young apprentice start to get under his skin.

Director Jason Bateman follows up Juno with another well-observed if rather less quirky take on modern lifestyle choices. This time the target demographic is the perennially mobile company man, essentially without an office and working from an endless series of executive airport lounges and anonymous chain hotels.

Ryan Bingham, splendidly played by George Clooney, has turned this professional lifestyle into the model for his entire life. When he isn't firing employees in locations all over America, he works the lecture circuit, preaching a philosophy of unburdening yourself of unnecessary baggage in order to make your life cleaner, simpler and less complicated. As such he is proud of a bachelor lifestyle that sees him a stranger to his siblings and with only a bare, one-room flat to serve as a very occasional and entirely reluctant home.

This situation begins to change when he meets an alluring, sophisticated female version of himself who is happy to share his penchant for uncomplicated hotel sex whenever their busy schedules permit. At the same time an eager junior colleague comes up with the money-saving idea of firing workers through video-conferencing from a home office location. Worried that his dream lifestyle is going to come to a juddering halt, Ryan persuades his boss to let him take the youngster out on the road to demonstrate how important it is to fire people in the flesh and not through the impersonality of technology.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy on 10 Oct. 2013
Format: DVD
I looked up dark comedy in the dictionary and it had "Up in the Air" by it. There isn't much plot to the movie, yet it keeps moving. It makes a statement about following your dreams, family, and goals as Clooney's words somehow always come back to haunt him. I had to laugh at loud when Sam Elliot came back to talk to Clooney about joining the 10 million mile club. Shades of "The Big Lebowski." I kept expecting him to call George "dude" and tell him he was his father. The movie is bittersweet at times and sad at others, although not a tear jerker. I was confused about his occupation. He is paid to come into an industry and tell the workers they are laid off. Doesn't HR fire people? Do they really hire an outside company to do that? The irony of a man who fires people for a living speaking at a conference called "Goalquest" is a bit Orwellian. The best line in the movie was during a firing that he allowed his young assistant to do. She got into trouble, so Clooney the master ax man, steps in and says, "Do you know why kids love ball players?" The old man says "Because the make a lot of money and have sex with beautiful women." Clooney responds, "No, that is why we love them. The reason why kids love them is because they followed their dream." He then convinces the man he can be a hero to grand kids by leaving this job and following his dream.
