Starring:  George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick, Jason Bateman, Danny McBride, Amy Morton, Melanie Lynskey, J. K. Simmons, Sam Elliott

Collection:  Movies

George Clooney plays Ryan Bingham, a guy who would rather be in a hotel or airplane than at home.  His job is to travel all over the country and tell other people that they no longer have a job.  One could even say that Bingham is an expert at severing ties.  His personal philosophy is based on making as few connections to other people as possible.  The only things he is loyal to are his preferred airline, hotel, and rental car companies.  But then circumstances contrive to challenge Bingham’s way of life.  He meets a woman he would like to spend more time with; his company forces him to travel with a new employee and share his experiences with her; and his sister guilts him into helping out another sister for her wedding.  Pretty soon, Bingham has to face the idea that he may need to make some changes to his philosophy as well.
