Oscar-nominated director Jason Reitman ("Juno") helms his own adaptation of Walter Kirn's 2001 comic novel. Supporting actor Oscar winner George Clooney  ("Syriana") stars as a corporate jetsetter whose quest to reach 5 million frequent-flier miles is stymied by budget cutbacks.<br>

"Up in the Air" quickly became an Oscar frontrunner after sneaking at Telluride and debuting at Toronto. Dave Karger at EW.com says, "Of all the films that premiered at Toronto or Telluride, Jason Reitman’s dramatic comedy emerged as the strongest across-the-board contender. At this point, nods for picture, director, actor (George Clooney), supporting actress (certainly Anna Kendrick, possibly Vera Farmiga as well), and adapted screenplay seem like sure things."
