"How much does your life weigh?"

While a great deal of "topical" motion pictures invariably arrive too late, 2009's Up in the Air is a flawlessly timed evocation of this modern age of corporate instability, a shaky global economy, and a general aura of uncertainty and discomfort.

"Ryan Bingham's (George Clooney) makes a living out of telling people that they're fired. Natalie Keener (Anna Kendrick) is a young upstart who's new ideas threaten to outmode Ryan's role in the profession. But as they both take flight to learn from each other's paradigms of the business, they both begin to learn that each of their lives isn't as grounded as either of 'em might have thought. Can you see the "Up In The Air" allegory coming in for a lending yet....? A smart in-depth story the de"
