Up in the Air

Up in the Air (2009) is a drama co-written and directed by Jason Reitman based on the book by Walter Kirn, about Ryan Bingham (George Clooney), a man whose lifestyle, which includes constant travel, keeps him isolated from others.

Life Lesson:

Live a life that makes it possible for you to find companionship.

Movie Scene:

Ryan: “If you think about it, your favorite memories, the most important moments in your life, were you alone?”

Jim (Ryan’s sister’s fiancé, who has cold feet): “No, I guess not.”

Ryan: “Hey, come to think of it, last night, the night before your wedding, when all this shit is swirling around in your head, weren’t you guys sleeping in separate bedrooms?”

Jim: “Yeah, Julie went back to the apartment and I was just by myself in the honeymoon suite.”

Ryan: “Kind of lonely, huh?”

Jim: “Yeah, it’s pretty lonely.”

Ryan: “Life’s better with company.”

Jim: “Yeah.”

Ryan: “Everybody needs a co-pilot.”
