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.

Jason Reitman has yet to make a bad movie. Thank You for Smoking, Juno, Up in the Air, Young Adult – not a dud in the lot, which gives me reason to believe that his latest, Labor Day, will also be brilliant. Check out the trailer after the jump. Labor Day opens in select theaters on Christmas Day and goes wide on January 31, 2014.
