电影在云端Up in the Air剧情介绍
生命有不能承受的重。但如果有无“重”的生活,你愿意过吗?
  赖安可以说是当下单身贵族的代表。高薪厚禄,学识满纶,举止不凡。工作就是常年飞来飞去为各地公司裁员,并偶尔做些成功学演讲。他对自己的“高空生活”非常满意,正常人深受所累的事业、家庭、爱人、朋友等等的人生之“重”他一概不重视,唯一的目标只是积攒一千万英里的飞行里程换取一张终身尊贵会员卡。
  但是新人纳塔利的到来,为他制造了一点麻烦。她设计出一套互联网系统,让裁员只需安坐于办公室。赖安对此非常不满,于是他带上纳塔利一起去体验这份计算机无法执行的工作。
  旅程之中,赖安发现这个表面傲气凌人、不解人情的小女孩,其实有着简单却细腻的感情,她对家庭、爱情和人生目标的质朴理解处处冲击着他心中那套对人、对幸福的反传统哲学。与此同时,与在机场邂逅的女子艾丽克斯的几次相遇,以及他妹妹的婚礼,都不断地让赖安审视自己的人生:不断的穿越长空、地域转移,人生还有什么记得住的时刻?于是这个男人决心安定下来,感受生活应有的分量,然而现实却又重重地给了他一记耳光……
  这个世界越来越多人慨叹生活之累,生活之重。然而,当“轻飘飘”的生活摆在面前,我们又惊讶于那么多人宁愿选择生活的重负——例如家庭,例如亲人,而且,即使再苦再累,他们却能露出会心的笑容。
  
  Weight & Weightless无负则无累
  
  (Ryan is giving a speech.)
  How much does your life weigh? Imagine for a second that you’re carrying a backpack. I want you to feel the straps on your shoulders. Feel ’em?
  Now I want you to pack it with all the stuff that you have in your life. Start with the little things, the things on shelves and in drawers, the 1)knickknacks, the collectibles. Feel the weight as that adds up.
  Then you start adding larger stuff—clothes, table-top appliances, lamps, linens, your TV...the backpack should be getting pretty heavy now. You go bigger. Your couch, bed, your kitchen table. You stuff it all in there. Your car, get it in there. Your home, whether it’s a studio apartment or a two-bedroom house. I want you to stuff it all into that backpack.
  Now try to walk. It’s kind of hard, isn’t it?
  This is what we do to ourselves on a daily basis. We weigh ourselves down until we can’t even move. And make no mistake...moving is living.
  Now, I’m gonna set that backpack on fire. What do you want to take out of it? Photos? Photos are for people who can’t remember. Drink some 2)ginkgo and let the photos burn. In fact, let everything burn and imagine waking up tomorrow with nothing.
  It’s kind of exhilarating, isn’t it?

 (赖安在作演讲。)
  你的生活到底有多重?假设一下你正背着一个背包。我想你们感受一下肩上背带的压力。感受到了么?
  现在,我要你把生活中的一切都装进这个背包。从小东西开始:书架上和抽屉里的物品,小玩意,零零碎碎的东西。感受不断增加的重量。
  现在开始往里装大点的物件:衣服、餐桌器具、台灯、日用织品、电视机……现在背包应该挺重的了。再装进更大的:沙发、床、餐桌。所有都塞进去。汽车,塞进去。你的家也塞进去——不管是个单房小公寓还是个二居室。我要你们把所有东西统统塞进背包去。
  现在,试着走走路。是不是有点费劲?
  这就是我们每天对待自己的方式。我们不断地给自己增重直到寸步难行。毫无疑问,生活就是不断移动。
  现在我想把背包给烧了,你决定从里面拿什么出来?照片?照片是给那些记不住事儿的人准备的。吃点健脑补品,就把它们烧了吧。实际上是,把所有东西都烧掉,然后想象一下第二天一身轻松地醒来的感觉。
  是不是轻松多了?

  Love & Loveless 无爱则无乐
  
  (Natalia talks to Ryan and Alex about her breaking up with her boyfriend.)
  Alex: He broke up with you over text message?
  Ryan: It’s kind of like firing someone over the Internet.
  Alex: What a weaselly prick.
  Natalie: But what does that make me? Someone who falls for a prick.
  Alex: We all fall for them. Pricks are 3)spontaneous, they're unpredictable and they're fun. Then we’re surprised when they turn out to be pricks.
  Natalie: I followed him to Omaha.
  Ryan: You did?
  Natalie: I had a job waiting for me in San Francisco when he got an offer from ConAgra. He said we could start a life together. So I followed him.
  Ryan: To Nebraska?
  Natalie: When I was 16, I thought by 23 I’d be married, maybe have a kid, corner office by day, entertaining at night. I was supposed to be driving a 4)Grand Cherokee by now.
  Alex: Life can underwhelm you that way.
  Natalie: I mean, where did you think you’d be by um...
  Alex: It doesn’t work that way.
  Ryan: At a certain point, you stop with the deadlines.
  Alex: It can be a little counterproductive.
  Natalie: I don’t want to say anything that's anti-feminist. I really appreciate everything that your generation did for me.
  Alex: It was our pleasure.
  Ryan: Well done.
  Natalie: But sometimes it feels like, no matter how much success I have, it’s not gonna matter until I find the right guy.
  Alex: You really thought this guy was the one?
  Natalie: I could have made it work. He um...He really fit the bill. You know?
  Ryan: The bill?
  Natalie: White collar, college grad. Loves dogs, likes funny movies. Six-foot-one, brown hair, kind eyes, works in finance but is outdoorsy...you know, on the weekends. I always imagined he’d have a single syllable name like Matt or John...or Dave. In a perfect world, he drives a 4Runner, and the only thing he loves more than me is his 5)Golden Lab. And a nice smile. What about you?
  Alex: Let me think. You know, honestly, by the time you’re 34, all the physical requirements just 6)go out the window. Like you secretly pray that he’ll be taller than you. Not an asshole would be nice. Just someone who enjoys my company, comes from a good family. Because you don’t think about that when you’re younger.
  I don’t know...someone who wants kids. Likes kids. Wants kids. Healthy enough to play with his kids. Please let him earn more money than I do. You might not understand that now, but believe me, you will one day. Otherwise that’s a recipe for disaster.
  And hopefully some hair on his head. But I mean even that’s not a deal breaker these days. A nice smile. Yeah, a nice smile. Nice smile just might do it.
  Natalie: Wow, that was depressing. I should just date women.
  Alex: Tried it. We’re no picnic ourselves.
  Natalie: I don’t mind being married to my career. And I don’t expect it to hold me in bed as I fall asleep. I just don’t want to settle.
  Alex: You’re young. Right now you see settling as some sort of a failure.
  Natalie: It is...by definition.
  Alex: But by the time someone is right for you, it won’t feel like settling. And the only person left to judge you will be the 23-year-old girl with a target on your back.
  (纳塔利向赖安和艾丽克斯说起与男友分手的事。)
  艾丽克斯:他发个短信就把你甩了?
  赖安:这就好像用网络来把人炒了。
  艾丽克斯:(你男友)真是个滑头混蛋。
  纳塔利:那我算什么?爱上混蛋的人?
  艾丽克斯:我们都这么做过。那些混蛋都率真,猜不透也很有趣。所以他们展现混蛋的面孔时,我们都大吃一惊。
  纳塔利:我是跟着他到奥马哈市来的。
  赖安:真的?
  纳塔利:我原本在旧金山获聘了一份工作,当时他得到了一份康尼格拉食品公司工作。他说我们可以一起开始新生活。所以我随他来了。
  赖安:去了内布拉斯加州?
  纳塔利:我16岁时认为,我到了23,就会结婚了。或许有个孩子,白天窝在某个办公室,晚上消遣一下。原本我现在应该开个大切诺基吉普车了。
  艾丽克斯:生活确实可能会让人感到如此枯燥乏味。
  纳塔利:我想问,你以前觉得你以后会……
  艾丽克斯:这个对我来说可不行。
  赖安:到了一定年龄,你就不会给自己设限。
  艾丽克斯:有时会坏事。
  纳塔利:我不想说任何关于反女权的话。我对你们前辈所做的一切都充满感激。
  艾丽克斯:我们很乐意。
  赖安:干得好。
  纳塔利:有些时候我觉得,如果我没找到那位真命天子的话,不管我多么成功都毫无意义。
  艾丽克斯:你真认为他就是真命天子?
  纳塔利:我本可以让这成为事实的。他只是……他真的很合乎我的要求。你知道吧?
  赖安:要求?
  纳塔利:白领,大学毕业,喜欢小狗,喜欢有趣的电影,六尺一吋(一米八五),棕色的头发,迷人的眼睛,在金融界工作,但是喜欢户外,比如在周末的时候。我一直想他该有个简单的名字,比如马特或者约翰……或者戴夫。在完美的世界里,他开四驱汽车,除了我以外,唯一他更爱的是他的小狗。还有,他笑容迷人。你呢?
  艾丽克斯:我想想。坦白说,一个人到了34岁的时候,外在要求已经没意义了,例如现在你私下期望他要比你高。如果他不是混蛋就好了。只要他爱和我待在一起,有不错的家庭背景。年轻时候不会想到这些的。
  我不知道怎么说。只要那人想要小孩,喜欢小孩子,想要小孩。身体健壮,可以跟自己的孩子玩就好。希望他挣钱比我多。你现在可能还不明白,但相信我,终有一天你会的。否则那会后患无穷。
  希望他头上还有点头发。但我想现在这也没什么大不了。迷人的笑容。对,迷人的笑容。迷人的笑容就都解决了。
  纳塔利:啊,实在高兴不起来。我应该和女人约会。
  艾丽克斯:早就试过了。我们自己也不是什么好东西。
  纳塔利:我不介意这辈子“嫁”给事业,但也不祈求这样就能让我幸福入睡。我只是不想安定下来。
  艾丽克斯:你还年轻,如今在你看来安定下来像是种失败。
  纳塔利:本来就是。
  艾丽克斯:等找到合适的人时,那就不是这种感觉了。到了那时候,就只有那个23岁的无知女孩才能评判你自己了。

  Care & Careless 无求则无怨
  
  (Ryan and Natalia are out to take photos.)
  Natalie: What happened to Alex?
  Ryan: She had to leave town early to get to a meeting.
  Natalie: That’s too bad. Where’s she live?
  Ryan: Chicago.
  Natalie: Thinking of going to see her?
  Ryan: We don’t really have that kind of relationship. Try it over there. That’s great.
  Natalie: What em...kind of relationship do you have?
  Ryan: Well, you know...casual.
  Natalie: Sounds pretty special.
  Ryan: It works for us.
  Natalie: Don’t you think there’s a future there?
  Ryan: I never really thought about it. What’s going on here?
  Natalie: Really never thought about it?
  Ryan: No.
  Natalie: How can you not think about that? How does it not even cross your mind that you might want a future with someone?
  Ryan: It’s simple. You know that moment when you look into somebody’s eyes and you can feel them staring into your soul and the whole world goes quiet, just for a second?
  Natalie: Yes.
  Ryan: Right. Well, I don’t.
  Natalie: You’re an asshole.
  Ryan: I'm just dicking around. Come on. Give me a hand.
  Natalie: Don’t you think it’s worth giving her a chance?
  Ryan: A chance to what?
  Natalie: A chance at something real.
  Ryan: Natalie, your definition of real is going to evolve as you get older.
  Natalie: Can you stop7)condescending for one second or is that one of the principles of your bullshit philosophy?
  Ryan: Bullshit philosophy?
  Natalie: The isolation, the travelling. Is that supposed to be charming?
  Ryan: No, it’s simply a life choice.
  Natalie: It’s a cocoon of self-8)banishment.
  Ryan: Wow. Big words.
  Natalie: Screw you.
  Ryan: Screw you, too.
  Natalie: You have set up a way of life that basically makes it impossible for you to have any kind of human connection. And now this woman comes along and somehow 9)runs the gauntlet of your ridiculous life choice, and comes out on the other end smiling just so you can call her “casual”? I need to grow up? You’re a 12-year-old.
  
  (Alex calls Ryan after he leaves her house.)
  Ryan: Alex?
  Alex: What were you thinking, showing up at my door like that?
  Ryan: What do you mean? I wanted to see you. I didn’t know you had a family. Why wouldn't you tell me that?
  Alex: Look, I’m sorry I ruined your evening but, I mean, you could have seriously screwed things up for me. That’s my family. That’s my real life.
  Ryan: I thought I was a part of your real life.
  Alex: I thought we signed up for the same thing.
  Ryan: Try and help me understand exactly what it is that you signed up for.
  Alex: I thought our relationship was perfectly clear. I mean...you are an escape. You’re a break from my normal lives, you’re a...a 10)parenthesis. Ryan: I’m a parenthesis?
  Alex: I mean...what do you want? Tell me what you want. You don’t even know what you want. Ryan, I’m a grown-up, OK? So if you would like to see me again, then…then give me a call. OK?
  
  (赖安与纳塔利在外拍照。)
  纳塔利:艾丽克斯现在呢?
  赖安:她早早起来走人去开会了。
  纳塔利:好遗憾,她住哪?
  赖安:芝加哥。
  纳塔利:你准备去见她?
  赖安:不,我们还真不是那种关系。去那儿照一张。很好。
  纳塔利:那,到底你们是一种什么关系?
  赖安:嗯,你知道,就是……随意吧。
  纳塔利:听起来还蛮另类的。
  赖安:对我们俩最好。
  纳塔利:你觉得这样会有结果吗?
  赖安:我从没认真想过。你到底怎么了?
  纳塔利:真没好好想过?
  赖安:真没有。
  纳塔利:你怎么能不去想?你怎么会连一个想跟某人在一起的念头都没有?
  赖安:道理很简单。你明白那种望向对方的双眼,就感到他们正看穿你的灵魂,而全世界就这么一下子寂静下来的感觉吗?
  纳塔利:明白。
  赖安:好。呃,我却不会明白。
  纳塔利:你就是个混蛋。
  赖安:我只是玩玩而已。来吧。帮个忙(照相)吧。
  纳塔利:你不认为应该给她个机会吗?
  赖安:什么机会?
  纳塔利:一个让你俩关系变得真实的机会。
  赖安:纳塔利,一个人对“真实”的理解是会随着年龄的递增而不断变化的。
  纳塔利:你就不能少高谈阔论一会吗,或者说,这又是你那套狗屁理论中的一点?
  赖安:狗屁理论?
  纳塔利:孤立状态,出差在外。就这么吸引你?
  赖安:没有,只是对生活作出的选择而已。
  纳塔利:你这就是作茧自缚般的自我隔离。
  赖安:哗,好高深的词汇。
  纳塔利:去你的吧。
  赖安:也去你的。
  纳塔利:你建立了一种生活方式,让你失去人类间的一切基本联系。然后这个女人出现了,好歹对你可笑的人生选择发起了冲击,然后还面带笑容,而最后你就用一个“随意”来形容她?还说我要长大?你才是12岁吧!
  
  (艾丽克斯在赖安离开她家后给他打电话。)
  赖安:艾丽克斯?
  艾丽克斯:你就这么出现在我家门口,脑子里想什么呢?
  赖安:你说什么?我只是想见你。我不知道你有家的了。你为什么不早跟我说呢?
  艾丽克斯:很抱歉,我把你一个晚上毁了。但你差点就让我难堪,让事情一发不可收拾了。那是我的家。我真实的生活。
  赖安:我还以为我也是你真实生活中的一部分呢。
  艾丽克斯:我还以为我们大家都在同一问题上达成共识了。
  赖安:那你就尽力让我搞清楚你要达成的共识到底是什么。
  艾丽克斯:我还以为我们之间的关系十分明白了呢。我是说……你是(我的)一种暂时解脱。你是(我)从正常的生活中抽身的一阵短暂歇息,你是一段……一段小插曲。
  赖安:我是个小插曲?
  艾丽克斯:我想说……你想要什么?告诉我你想要什么。你根本都不知道自己想要什么。我是个成年人了,好吧?所以,要是你还想见我的话,就……就给我打电话。好吧?
