Entertainment Weekly has the first look of Kate Winslet and Josh Browling on upcoming Labor Day
The guy who is bleeding from his side needs help. But heâ€™s not asking â€“ heâ€™s telling.
Thatâ€™s the setup for the simmering drama Labor Day, starring Josh Brolin as an escaped convict who takes shelter with the mentally fragile, reclusive single-mom Adele (Kate Winslet) and her almost-teenage son (Changlingâ€™s Gattlin Griffith) over the course of one long late-summer holiday weekend in the mid-1980s.
Whether they are helpers or hostages is a question even in their own minds. Brolinâ€™s Frank Chambers displays a tenderness toward the frightened mother and son, but the relentless news reports on TV describe him as dangerous â€” and he isnâ€™t exactly forthcoming about what landed him in prison in the first place.
Labor Day opens in theaters Dec. 25.
