The critically acclaimed Up in the Air stars George Clooney as businessman Ryan Bingham. As he spends more and more time traveling alone, we see his interactions with other frequent flyers and his work colleagues.

This comedy-drama has the best of both humour and sentiment. The three leads – Clooney, Vera Farmiga & Anna Kendrick – have all been praised for their performances. Clooney was nominated for Best Actor, whilst Farmiga and Kendrick were both nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

As the film begins very late, I recommend a weekend viewing on BBC iPlayer!

Up in the Air is on BBC1 at 23.55.
