So I finally got to see the movie Up In the Air with George Clooney. I thought I knew what the movie was about but I really was surprised by the movie. I mean, it was about a guy who travels the country and fires people for a living, which must be a difficult job especially during a recession. Who wants to hear that they are fired in these hard economic times. But I digress.
The part of the movie that I was most surprised about was the lesson that he learned. I had not expected that there was a good part to the movie. Although I thought the movie was really slow,
I still enjoyed it. I think that it really brought to light a lifestyle that I am not familiar with but I could genuinely sympathize with. I am very close and connected with most of the people in my life - family, sorority, bookclub, friends, etc. So I find in interesting to meet people who are not connected to people at all for whatever reason. And the Clooney character seemed so genuine when talking to the people he had to fire, there was no way that you would think that he was not sincere. I guess thats what it means to be good at what you do. Clooney truly made the people feel inspired, and tapped into the most vulnerable sides of people. Did he truly understand those soft sides of people because he didnt really seem to have that soft side of his own? He was totally disconnected from the rest of the world and stuck in the routine of his traveling life. His goal was only to get to the next destination but there was no inbetween. I guess this is why I could sympathize with him, because he has no idea what he is missing by being so disconnected.
And for those that saw the movie, what do you think happened in the end? After he showed up at the lady's house and saw that she had a family. I am sure he was devastated. Do you think that made him go back into the shell of a lifestyle that he was living before she awakened something in him to make him want to finally settle down? What are your thoughts? What did he do?
In honor of the world travelers and all the flying time in the movie (which the cinematography was awesome), I wore my parisian inspired skirt today.
