Up

Natalie Keener: How can you not think about that? How does it not even cross your mind that you might want a future with someone?
Ryan Bingham: It’s simple; you know that moment when you look into somebody’s eyes and you can feel them staring into your soul and the whole world goes quiet… just for a second?
Natalie Keener: Yes!
Ryan Bingham: Right, well I don’t.

There are very few films like “Up in the Air”. Very few films that make you sit up in the middle of the night, praying to God you don’t get fired (or if you do get fired, atleast it is by a George Clooney looka… no, I’d rather not get fired). I loved George Clooney, I loved the girl from Twilight (who, according to me, held her own in every single scene) and I also loved the guy who danced with Natalie in the party she crashed in. Loved every single bit of it. There is so much to take away from the movie. Like the fact that even though you wish you were detached and single and living in the faux luxury of frequent flyer miles, you still, deep down, yearn to come back to the ground, to be touched by humans, to be loved by someone. And also, like the cardboard cutouts that Ryan carries around, how much ever you try to stay away from family, it finally gets you. Like the tax guy, or knee pain.
