Up in the Air
Mature look at the world of corporate downsizing mixes romance, humor and a timely personal touch
When Up in the Air marches confidently into February’s Oscar race (and it will), it will be on the strength of its sharp writing and expertly grounded performances. If Up in the Air succeeds at the box office (and it might), it will be due largely to the film’s timely theme.
