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