The film Labor Day based on the book by Joyce Maynard, directed by Jason Reitman. It is a wonderful story about trust, tenderness and strength in the belief that love can present itself in so many different, unexpected and beautiful ways. It’s a story about vulnerability, truth and love in New Hampshire in the early 80s.
The cinematography is beautiful with lots of evocative green countryside, leafy trees and the community of folk going about their everyday lives. The film gently shapes all the images of a tranquil safe haven for an unexpected, potentially dangerous and yet sweet love.
You have to love Labor Day… it serves up a fantastic double whammy of Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, with the full gamut of endearing human emotions brought together brilliantly by Gattlin Griffith as Kate Winslet’s Son and Tobey Maguire as the Son 20 years down the line, who puts the final slice of delectable peach into this fantastic home-baked pie of love.
