Labor Day Blu-ray Review

While I am a fan of Kate Winslet, the commercials for the release of Labor Day in the theater had the same Bridges of Madison County feel to it, so I decided to wait for the DVD.

Labor Day Blu-RayThe story focuses on Henry, a 13 year old boy set in 1987, who has the need to take care of his depressed mom, Adele (Kate Winslet).

Adele, who doesn’t like to leave her house as you learn why through flashbacks, is shopping with Henry when he is approached by a wounded man (Frank, played by Josh Brolin) who in a nice but not so nice manner, wants to be taken to their house to rest. Frank, it turns out is a convicted murderer who escaped and is on the run. Again through flashbacks, you learn what lead Frank to the murder conviction.

Over the next few days, a bond the forms not only between Frank and Adele but with Frank and Henry. They must now decide on the next steps…to tell you more would spoil the movie!

While I found the movie be be just OK, the ending will leave you with a tear in your eye…unless you are cold and heartless. Labor Day is based on the novel written by Joyce Maynard, and directed by Jason Reitman. He has several other movies to his name including Juno and Jeff, Who Lives at Home, the only two I have heard of yet alone watched. That should have been my clue, as neither of those movies I cared for.

This Peach Pie Recipe does represent a special point in the movie…

    I haven’t heard of this movie before now. It sounds interesting though.

    I’m not much for these types of films. I like the pie recipe though!

    I guess once I watch the movie I’ll figure our what all the pie references are for, I noticed the giveaways always included a pie plate.
