Set against the backdrop of the financial crisis of 2008, Up in the Air (Rated R) follows Ryan Bingham as he flies around the country doing his job--firing people. His spartan lifestyle, which keeps him almost constantly airborne en route to the next city, suits him just fine. But when a new business model and a romantic entanglement threaten his comfortable existence, his goals shift unexpectedly.

Starring George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, and Anna Kendrick.
