Up In The Air

From voicing a fantastic fox to staring at goats, cinema has had a brief Clooney overload, however he may have saved the best for last with Up In The Air.

Ryan Bingham's job is to tell other people they're out of a job. Travelling from company to company, building up his frequent flyer miles and occasionally giving self help speeches about how to simplify your life - he's happy.

However, behind the fast paced lifestyle lies a hollow man with no real connection to anyone.

When Ryan's cushy existence is threatened by Alex, (Vera Farminga) a career-driven rookie who suggests that the travelling aspect of his job could be cut out, he is forced to take her on the road and prove to her that it's necessary.

With a impressive supporting cast consisting of Jason Bateman, Danny McBride, Zack Galifianakis and J.K Simmons, Juno director Jason Reitman once again proves to be a film maker worth paying attention to.

Up In The Air is released on 15th January 2010.
