Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Nov 8th at 7pm for Up in the Air (Free Screening) at the AMC Boston Common 19 . Look for Audra wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Note: This is a free screening and is first-come, first-serve. Audra will be in the theatre lobby around 6pm with the passes. Director Jason Reitman will be in attendance and a Q&A session shall follow the screening.
“From Jason Reitman, the OscarÂ®-nominated director of Juno, comes Up in the Air, the timely odyssey of Ryan Bingham (OscarÂ® winner GEORGE CLOONEY), a corporate downsizer and consummate modern business traveler who, after years of staying happily airborne, suddenly finds himself ready to make a real connection.
Ryan has long been contented with his unencumbered lifestyle lived out across America in airports, hotels and rental cars. He can carry all he needs in one wheel-away case; heÂ’s a pampered, elite member of every travel loyalty program in existence; and heÂ’s close to attaining his lifetime goal of 10 million frequent flier miles Â– and yet . . . Ryan has nothing real to hold onto.
When he falls for a simpatico fellow traveler (VERA FARMIGA), RyanÂ’s boss (JASON BATEMAN), inspired by a young, upstart efficiency expert (ANNA KENDRICK), threatens to permanently call him in from the road. Faced with the prospect, at once terrifying and exhilarating, of being grounded, Ryan begins to contemplate what it might actually mean to have a home.”
