“UP IN THE AIR” IS AN OSCAR NOMINEE!
At this time, “Up In The Air” is one of the three top contenders for Oscar nominations for “Best Feature.”
Led by charismatic performances by its three leads, director Jason Reitman delivers a smart blend of humor and emotion with just enough edge for mainstream audiences.
After getting Oscar attention for “Juno,” director Jason Reitman turns to this adaptation of Walter Kirn’s comic novel. Academy Award-winner George Clooney stars as Ryan Bingham, a businessman on the verge of reaching five million frequent flyer miles when his company decides to cut back on travel. But his goal isn’t the only thing just out of reach: he now won’t be able to see a fellow frequent traveler (The Departed’s Vera Farmiga) who has caught his eye.
Great performances by George Clooney, Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick.
“Up in the Air” got six Golden Globe and seven Broadcast Film Critics nominations.
