LABOR DAY is an upcoming drama film directed by Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air), based on the novel of the same name by Joyce Maynard. It stars Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, alongside Gattlin Griffith who cast as the key child role Henry, while Tobey Maguire plays an older incarnation of him. Set in 1987 over the late summer holiday weekend, the film opens with divorced, depressed single mom Adele (Winslet) clothes shopping with her 13-year-old son, Henry (Griffith). They encounter a large, fearsome man who is bleeding badly, and against all judgment, they give him a ride to their home. The injured man (Brolin) is in fact an escaped convict from the local prison, and as the police search narrows, the mother and son gradually learn his true story and their options become more and more limited.
