Jason Reitman's Labor Day, adapted from the novel of the same name by Joyce Maynard, stars Kate Winslet as Adele, an emotionally shaky single mom to Henry (Gattlin Griffith). As the twosome shop for clothes Henry will wear when he begins seventh grade after the long Labor Day weekend, the boy is accosted by Frank (Josh Brolin), an escaped convict with a bleeding wound on his stomach. Frank manipulates Adele into letting him hide out at their house, and soon the seemingly scary man shows a strong domestic side and, in just a few days, develops a deep bond with both Adele and Frank. Co-starring Brooke Smith, J.K. Simmons, and Tobey Maguire, Labor Day screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.~Perry Seibert
This movie is a definite chick flick. I watched the movie with my wife and I have to say it was pretty good. This movie is up there with "The VOW" or "The Notebook" . A tear jerking movie. Well made and characters performed very convincingly. Great story line. It is for sure one of my wife's favorite movies.
The trailers were right on for this movie, it only took a matter of 10 minutes to get into this movie prior to getting sucked into the story line emotionally, it is a nice clean family movie for all to watch, and rings home how a broken family can become complete when a stranger enters your life, always keep your heart open and love will eventually find its way in. I know that sounds cheesy but it was well cast and directed with an awesome twist.
This movie was a great movie with a great story. The acting in this movie was top notch which we expected. I really enjoyed this movie with my family.
This review is from Labor Day [DVD]

Great Summer Movie/Love Story
This movie was very entertaining. I did not read the book, so I cannot comment on that, but the story and plot are great and the chemistry between the actors is great as well. I have watched it more than once now and because of the feel of the movie will add it to my summer watch list.
