In Jason Reitman‘s Labor Day, Kate Winslet once again plays a character who complicates her existence by jumping into bed with the wrong person. This time, it’s Josh Brolin’s sexy escaped convict who takes she and her son hostage. Before long, Stockholm syndrome and horny mommitis take over leading Winslet to attempt to build a life with the fugitive killer after discovering he can not only satisfy her physical needs, but do so while baking a pie. That’s just showing off.
Between the time period and the boy having to stay one step ahead of the law in order to protect their house guest, this film reminds me of The Iron Giant. Except for the pie sex.
