Labor Day looks like a movie for grown ups but KidsPickFlicks' Movie Star Movie Crix Joel Courtney (Super 8) and Katherine McNamara (Contest) absolutely loved it, unexpectedly finding themselves on the edge of their seats!

"Labor Day is not at all reminiscent of the relaxing holiday that gives it its title. The film is quite intense, quickly transforming from a thriller about an escaped convict to an entrapuring love story. This film pushes the emotional boundaries of both the actors and the audience ranging from love, hurt, betrayal, depression, murder, and ultimately to hope. Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin give award worthy performances as two broken people who were previously scarred by love and thought they would be alone forever but find each other instead. Also, Gattlin Griffiths did a phenomenal job and held his own with these masters of their craft as Henry, Winslet's son. We highly recommend this film. »
