Up in the Air was finally available for rent. I was thrilled to see it because I missed watching it in theaters. With the recent buzz from the Oscars, I was anticipating a great film. I watched Juno and enjoyed it, so I had high expectations. Honestly, I think that Jason Reitman presented a phenomenal story (although I have not read the novel, so I cannot compare). George Clooney played his role expertly and brought Ryan to life. The cinematography was excellent. There will be several moments when you will be blown away by the fact that these places are in the United States. By the end of the movie, I really wanted to do some traveling. You will be able to discuss this one with your friends. It has several heavy stories within it. It is definitely a feeling of real life. You are often confronted by very real correlations between the film and reality. I think that is what makes this film so incredible.
