US RATING: ****

IN STORES NOW

This bittersweet recession tale -- which earned six Oscar nods -- features George Clooney at the top of his game as Ryan Bingham, who travels the U.S. to lay off workers. But when his boss opts for a fire-by- computer scheme developed by a young manager (Anna Kendrick), Ryan is grounded -- and his life unravels. His crisis echoes that of the people he axes, and Clooney achieves a muted level of emotion that's devastating. It is, simply put, a contemporary classic. (Paramount, $30)
