Jason Reitman is my favorite director right now! He's smart, witty, and his films have all been memorable. "Up in the Air" is one of my favorite films this year! Definitely!
In this interview, we talked about:

*** Jason started writing this film as a single guy, and finished it as a married dad with a mortgage
