Brolin and Winslet in Two Great Trailers for Labor Day

Two great trailers have been released for Labor Day, the upcoming drama starring Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet.

Depressed single mom Adele and her son Henry offer a wounded, fearsome man a ride. As police search town for the escaped convict, the mother and son gradually learn his true story as their options become increasingly limited.

This drama from writer-director Jason Reitman (Thank You for Smoking, Juno, Up in the Air) certainly  looks like a confident piece of work. We’re also looking forward to seeing these two great actors perform together in what looks like an emotional and well-made film. Reitman adapted Joyce Maynard’s novel.

A word of warning: the second trailer (as usual) may give a little too much of the story away.

You can find the official synopsis and movie poster underneath the trailers.

Official synopsis for Labor Day:

“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.
