I now have utter proof that I travel too much for work–I understood far too much of aspects of this movie! That aside, it is incredibly well-done and reflective of our time in a broad way without, usually, being overly maudlin or sentimental. Reitman’s script is smart and sharp–one of his best in years. And Clooney is utterly believable, rather than just entertaining, which I’ve not seen him do in a long time. And while not an “up” movie, it is not without its empowering moments.
