Sheldon Turner brought back to the big screen the oft-forgotten art of stylish dialogue brimming with wit and heart in scripts that were at once light and dark; romantic and tragic. Flying under the Hollywood radar until he discovered a novel by Walter Kirn that forever changed his professional life, Turner penned the film version of that novel called "Up in the Air" (2009), a highly acclaimed drama about a man who happily detaches himself from any emotional connection by living his life entirely on the road. Turner shared writing credits with the film's director, Jason Reitman, as well as an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2010. Turner's script was storytelling at its best and elevated his status as one of his generation's most original screenwriters.
