Disclosure: I was invited to a special screening of the movie, however all opinions expressed are my own.
There has been some times that a movie has an stellar cast and the movie is not good. But I had a feeling that a movie with Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin and James Van Der Beek was going to be good. I was not wrong, Labor Day is a very intense, well acted movie that will keep you glue to your seat with anxiety to see what happens next.
In the movie Kate Winslet’s plays Adele a very depressed woman with a son, Henry (played by actor Gattlin Griffith) that takes care of her even though he is still a child. They end up being “stuck” with Frank (Played by Josh Brolin) an escaped convict. The story develops from there and there is a little bit of everything: love, loss, depression and even some wonderful pie baking.
After the movie, we had a Q&A session with James Van Der Beek (remember him from Dawson’s Creek?). The Moms’ Denise Albert and Melissa Musen hosted another awesome Mamarazzi event.
We ended up the night, enjoying some coffee and desert (very tasty pies)... by the way I really did not eat the whole thing...
I really enjoyed the movie. A love story just in time for Valentine's day, but named Labor Day. Head out to theaters and do not forget your klennex
Labor Day opened on January 31st, 2014
