Jason Reitman (Up in the Air, Juno, Thank You for Smoking) is back in the awards race with Labor Day, a dramatic film adapted from Joyce Maynard’s bestselling novel. The film is set for limited release on December 25, 2013 (in order to be qualify for Oscar consideration) followed by a wide release in late January 2014. And Paramount Pictures has just unveiled this first poster for the movie featuring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin.
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.
