"Up in the Air" starring George Clooney

Isn't it interesting that Jason Reitman's new movie "Up in the Air" starring George Clooney got a write-up in the Business section of the Los Angeles Times? Claudia Eller writes:

Six years ago, when Jason Reitman set out to write a dramatic comedy about a "corporate downsizer" who flies around the country and fires employees, the economy was booming and jobs were plentiful. By the time the young director, known for his 2007 hit "Juno," got around to making "Up in the Air," the world had drastically changed.

A display map of mounting unemployment across the nation looks like the fall-out map after the Chernobyl disaster. To see it, go here and click 'Play'.

"I can't imagine the pressure my parents felt when they ran out of money," Clooney said. "That's an experience our country is going through again in a big way."
