UP IN THE AIR is a triumphant tale for our turbulent times. With the clarity of perspective that comes from a window seat at 30,000 feet, Jason Reitman proves again to soar among the art form's finest storytellers. Together, with co-screenwriter Sheldon Turner, he has taken the words from Walter Kirn's novel and given them flight in a film that both harkens back to the glory of Hollywood past and assures audiences that smart, witty and painfully human stories are here for the future. This sentiment is best embodied in George Clooney, an American treasure who captivates again with his signature alchemy of gentleman and jester, charmer and chump. The film is also a showcase for two of the most original female characters of the year, played with grace and gusto by Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick. UP IN THE AIR is a film that defines the challenges of a generation - to consider what one truly values in life - and where we call home.

This film evoked a variety of emotions amongst the Jury and the reception of this was tangible in the theatre. Juno is about a teenage girl coming to terms with an unexpected pregnancy who deals with the situation in her own special way. The role of Juno is aptly played by Ellen Page who along with ensemble cast present the witty and interesting script with conviction.
