Kate Winslet ('Divergent') and Josh Brolin ('Oldboy') star alongside Gattlin Griffith in director Jason Reitman's latest, 'Labor Day.' By the looks of the new trailer, it seems like nothing the 'Up in the Air' and 'Juno' helmer has ever attempted before.
/Film debuted a special online exclusive 'Labor Day' trailer, hours ahead of Paramount's theatrical version, and on first glance it looks like a Stockholm Syndrome-type scenario with the focus placed on the young Griffith's character, who himself is only coming of age. However, there seems to be a bit more to the story than meets the eye. From Paramount's official description:
LABOR DAY centers on 13-year-old Henry Wheeler, who struggles to be the man of his house and care for his reclusive mother Adele while confronting all the pangs of adolescence. On a back-to-school shopping trip, Henry and his mother encounter Frank Chambers, a man both intimidating and clearly in need of help, who convinces them to take him into their home and later is revealed to be an escaped convict. The events of this long Labor Day weekend will shape them for the rest of their lives.
It feels like ages ago that 'Labor Day' made its debut at the Toronto International FIlm Festival, and now its finally ready for a limited release on December 25 with a wider one coming on January 31.
