Plot Summary

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Nothing against Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin and director Jason Reitman - top talents all - but my goodwill drowned while trying to swallow this treacly cocktail of romantic swill. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Jan 31, 2014

Rotten: "Labor" isn't just a word in the title of Jason Reitman's new film, it's a description of what it feels like to sit through the movie. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Feb 1, 2014

Rotten: Mush [that] comes with an unappetizing side order of condescension and contempt. – Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, Jan 31, 2014

Rotten: The really baffling thing is that this clunker has been written, directed and produced by Jason Reitman, whose previous movies include Juno and Up in the Air. What was he thinking? – David Sexton, This is London, Mar 21, 2014

Don't believe the bad reviews!

Just saw this movie in the theater. It's really good. Not action packed so you have to be someone that likes a slower paced movie. Reminds me a little of Bridges of Madison County with it's rhythm and simplicity. It doesn't end as sad as you'd think. I adored Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet together. Truly a beautiful story.

Enjoyed this movie

I did enjoy this movie, it was told in the point of view of the son. I am not sure that is what I would have preferred, because I think I would have enjoyed the story a bit more if it was in the point of view of the mother, so that we could get a little bit more romanticism out of it. Instead we got her son's point of view, who made us miss out on some potentially steamy scenes. I am guessing that is how the book was written though, which make sense to follow through for the movie.

This story is one that is a slight tear jerker, or more so gets your choked up.

They only had an extended weekend together, but this fugitive is everything and more that this single mother and her son have ever needed.

I wish we learned a little more about why he ended up in prison though :/

But overall, I would recommend watching this movie. Perhaps don't purchase it like I did though, just wait to rent it.

Must Read..!

Listen..This movies is one of my favourite, not just that even the star of the movie..Kate Winslet.. I means.. That's just great, this movie will make you think of the living these days and it will show you the life before 10 years ago and before that!
Nowadays we don't live like that.. Now we all live through the Internet and TV..and all those silly systems like Samsung and iPhone, those are our oxygens these days!
