Jason Reitman United States, 2009

film_lies101's rating of the film Up in the Air

In times of economic peril/uncertainty you need people there for you. This is the kind of sentiment that only works in a movie, real life is far more complicated than pat cliches. The performances are quite good, the biting satire does gets drowned out by sap (why?), and the song choices tend to lead audiences emotions (transparently manipulative)
