This Week's DVD/Blu-ray Choice - 24th May

Both DVDs/Blu-rays released this coming Monday have been critically appraised upon their theatrical release, but i'll be recommending only one.

My choice this week is Up in the Air.

George Clooney stars, in his Oscar-nominated role, as Ryan Bingham, a man whose job revolves around him traveling across the country, infiltrating other companies and firing people. That is until his company grounds him, leaving him to train up-and-comer Natalie (Twilight's Anna Kendrick in a career-defining role). His dislike gets the best of him, until he meets fellow-business woman Alex (Vera Farmiga). Written, partially, and directed by Jason Reitman, the film is a cleverly written, brilliantly acted drama. A DVD purchase would be perfectly fine for the film Up in the Air is.
