Labor Day

Director Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air) usually injects more humor into his films, but Labor Day is much more serious fare. But what the movie lacks in a sense of humor, it makes up for in depth as the tale of an ex-convict (Josh Brolin) hiding out with a single mother (Kate Winslet) unfolds. Their contentious meeting evolves into a romance over the course of the next few days, and we get a lesson in loneliness, love, and loss. Winslet is at her usual best as a mother with her own demons, but the most memorable thing about this movie is the surprisingly electric chemistry she shares with Brolin.
