This is an Oscar-winning short with an unusual and unexpected ending. Even without the ending, it is a film worth watching. I find it very similar to the scenes in "To Fly!" (1976) where a man soars in a balloon over the countryside of the Eastern U.S. However, in Up, you are soaring over the Western U.S. using a different and more modern means of transport. The views are those that you simply cannot get from ground level allow you to float like a very high-flying butterfly or, more appropriately, a high flying bird. I recommend this movie for its scenic views, although the ending can be a basis for discussion. Pyramid Media offers this for sale and rent. Unlike many of the films they distribute, this one has a somewhat reasonable price.
