The Golden Globe house-cleaning film Up in the Air, starring George Clooney has no plot, no action, and no special effects. I. t also deserved the awards it won.
Up in the Air is a story about a man who fires people for a living. He travels across the country, living out of a suitcase–and loving every minute of it. He even speaks to professionals about letting go of everything. Then stuff happens.
This film makes one think about priorities and life. Pretty good for a film without a plot, eh?
George Clooney is brilliant. Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga are great supporting actresses. The music is sufficient, but not memorable.
Up in the Air runs 108 and is rated R. Do not show this to your kids, the language gets bad at times, there is some sexuality (they don’t show too much) and any kids really won’t get it or appreciate it. I give Up in the Air 10 ramheads out of 10.
