"Labor Day" (2014 release; 111 min.) brings the story of Adele (played by Kate Winslet), a thirty-something single mother with a son Henry (played by Gattlin Griffith) who is about to start 7th grade and whose voice-over guides the movie. Adele doesn't get out of the house a lot (much later in the movie we learn why in flashbacks) but one day she and Henry go to the local grocery store, and Henry gets cornered by some guy (played by Josh Brolin) who desperately needs a getaway ride. We later learn he is Frank, a convicted murderer who is on the run (much later in the movie we learn about the circumstances of his conviction). Adele and Henry drive him to their house. It isn't long before there is a connection of sorts between Adele and Frank, and Henry dryly observes that, among many different things they did, "Frank ironed and in return my mom taught him how to rumba", ha! With the cops still looking for Frank, eventually Frank and Adele must decide whether to make a run for it. To tell you more of the plot would surely spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to experience it for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: this movie is directed and adopted for the screen by Jason Reitman, who previously brought us movies like Juno, Thank You For Smoking, Up In the Air and most recently Young Adult. If you look at that string of films, "Labor Day" is quite a departure for him. He probably wanted to stretch his legs, so to speak, and good for him. Second, this is really two movies into one. The first movie, played out in the first hour, focuses on the connection that is building between Adele and Frank (and indirectly with Henry as well), and I have to admit that I wasn't crazy about it, as it plays out pretty much as I would expect a Nicolas Sparks adaptation.

I didn't run to the theater to catch this movie, despite the mountain of marketing that preceded the opening. Sure, Labor Day has a great pedigree, with actors Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, plus director Jason Reitman, the new Hollywood wunderkind who gave us Juno and Up in the Air. But the schmaltzy ad campaign gave Labor Day all of the appeal of a typical bodice ripper paperback, a Harlequin Romance up on the big screen, and it just seemed a little, well, desperate, with the lead actors solemnly giving all of reasons that I should hurry and see their movie. Hurry and see it before all of the reviews come out, it read in captions only I could see.

But I wasn't a football fan, so on Superbowl Sunday I took my Mom along, and since there was nothing remotely appropriate for a 78 year old women (her, not me) I bought tickets at a virtually empty multi-plex, and settled down for what I hoped was a tolerable few hours.

Labor Day begins when Adele (the always captivating Kate Winslet) shows us with just a few gestures that she is not a happy woman, afraid to drive her car out of the driveway with her 13 year old son in tow to make her monthly trip to the local market. Tobey Maguire, who should put "professional voice-over artist" on his resume, provides the grown-up narrative voice of son Henry, played as a boy by (him of the very cool name) Gattlin Griffith, who confirms Adele's on-going depression, along with the information that she had been left by her husband, his father, and had grown steadily sadder since. Henry gives up a much sunnier life with his father and new wife and kids to become his mother's keeper, watching her constantly, helping, correcting and gently guiding his trembling and troubled mom through life.

Usually I stay away from sappy movies....THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM. Most love stories you can predict and this one had me at the edge of my couch the entire time. I had no idea Josh Brolin was this sexy. He's my new crush. I honestly think this is Winslet's best work too. The casting director picked thee best actor to play her son too. He fit the 'paranoid part perfect for what that character was. On a personal level--it hit home when you found out why Kate's character was the way she was. (Without giving it away....that also happened to me and I never got to REALLY cry until now. Thank you.

I was apprehensive attending the Saturday morning showing of Jason Reitman's Labor Day. Although I almost always avoid reviews and trailers when I am certain I will see a movie, I had heard the mostly negative buzz for Reitman's fifth movie. I also knew that this wouldn't contain the humor that I loved in Thank You for Smoking, Juno, Up in the Air and Young Adult. In short, I was afraid that Reitman's perfect record would be broken, but in my mind at least, he's still batting a thousand. If you're a Reitman fan, I urge you to stop reading until you have seen the movie. It's impossible to talk about it without giving away significant plot points.

For those of you who are undecided, I'm not going to mention anything that isn't revealed in the trailer.

Adele (Kate Winslet) plays a single mother who lives with her son, Henry (Gattlin Griffith). Her former husband had a child with another woman and Adele struggles to cope with depression and social anxiety. She barely leaves the house, shopping just once a month for supplies from the local store. It might be difficult to understand this condition if you have never suffered from it. Some days are good, and it's possible to talk to a total stranger; other days are difficult, and the slightest trigger can result in a surge of panic. This fight or flight feeling can be overwhelming, and, as a coping technique, those who suffer from anxiety run through every possible scenario before facing the world.

You can imagine Adele's horror when Henry introduces her to Frank (Josh Brolin), who just met him in the store and asked for a ride. I can imagine Adele wondering how to extract herself from the situation without upsetting her son. Does Frank look safe, or could he turn out to be dangerous?
