"up in the air"

yesterday i went to go see up in the air. my friend michelle recommended this movie to me. prior to her telling me about it i had never really even heard of it, and i'm not too much of a george clooney fan, but i decided to check it out.
this was a great movie. it is a great "life" movie and relates to what is going on in current day america. i myself believe that everything in life has a happy medium. with a good balance nothing is bad, but too much of something can be bad. and this movie represents one of those extremes.
it's about a man (george clooney) who travels 300+ days out of the year firing people and giving motivational speeches. he keeps himself very detached from life and relationships. his working life then changes when a 23 year old young woman comes in with a different way of working. he challenges this "girl" to live his life of traveling and showing that his type of work needs be done in person.
i would highly recommend this movie. it makes you appreciate what you have, and at the same time look for more value in your life. check it out.
STRIKE! 60 min
