Up in The Air (2009 Movie)
This is a 2009 romantic-comedy-drama movie which I have watched it this afternoon. The movie was starred by George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, and Anna Kendrick as the main casts. It directed by Jason Reitman.
The film plot was about a corporate downsizer Ryan Bingham, played by George Clooney, and his travels to do his work. Ryan Bingham's job is to fire people from theirs. The anguish, hostility, and despair of his "clients" has left him falsely compassionate, living out of a suitcase, and loving every second of it. When his boss hires arrogant young Natalie, she develops a method of video conferencing that will allow termination without ever leaving the office - essentially threatening the existence Ryan so cherishes. Determined to show the naive girl the error of her logic, Ryan takes her on one of his cross country firing expeditions, but as she starts to realize the disheartening realities of her profession, he begins to see the downfalls to his way of life.
It is a nice story. No violence, no action, but a great movie. Four a half star from me.
