Jason Reitman's third outing -- after 'Thank You for Smoking' and 'Juno' -- has been generating great buzz, great reviews and, on Thursday, picked up the National Board of Review's best film of the year nod.

George Clooney plays Ryan Bingham, a high-flying executive who makes his living traveling from city to city, company to company, firing employees for other executives who either can't do it themselves or need a more professional hand in terminating their help. He's a member of every elite travel loyalty program in existence and is closing in on his lifetime goal: 10 million frequent flier miles. But all that changes when faced with two new obstacles: a relationship with a simpatico fellow traveler (Vera Farmiga) and a scheme by his bosses to outsource firing through the Internet.
