‘Labor Day’ Review

Labor Day review
Paramount Pictures

Jason Reitman's new film 'Labor Day' is adapted from a Joyce Maynard novel, and while her literary pedigree holds some water, what ends up represented here leads me to think it's one of those books with Fabio on the cover.

It's New England, it's the 80s and Hank (Gattlin Griffith) is the emo-ist kid in the world. He's got a reason to be. He lives alone with his clinically depressed mother (Kate Winslet). While still new to adolescence, he's basically taking care of her. His father (Clark Gregg) couldn't hack it anymore, but lives in the same town with a new wife and new kids.

Stagnancy has hit the (large, old) house but one Labor Day weekend Winslet's longing for an adult connection will be met. Josh Brolin enters her life and he is the dreamiest of dreamboats every to emerge from a dream. He's handsome, he's attentive and he fixes things around the house. He teaches Hank how to swing a baseball bat and he bakes his own pie crust from scratch, for heaven's sake. There's only one problem - he's just escaped from prison and he's wanted for murder.

Labor Day weekend is that one time of year when we get an extra day to kick our feet up on the coffee table and gorge on our favorite comfort foods, which is why it's also the perfect time to enjoy a movie or series marathon on the tube.

The great thing about Labor Day marathons is that there's virtually something for everyone to enjoy and they run all weekend long. The bad thing? There's way too much out there, making it next to impossible to decide what you're in the mood for. That's where we come in.
