In 2009 Up In The Air was released, in 2021 the Glacé Film Club sat down to review it. The Comedy-Drama starring George Clooney, Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga went on to be nominated for as many as 6 academy awards. Not too shabby eh?
The plot follows the life of Ryan, who has the unique job of travelling the US to fire employees within big organisations. His jet-set lifestyle sees him constantly travelling, boarding flights all across America.
