'Labor Day' Is A Tearjerker, Though Maybe Not An Awards Winner [Trailer]


Kate Winslet Josh Brolin Jason Reitman

Much of the talk ahead of the Telluride Film Festival earlier this year focused on Jason Reitman's drama Labor Day, starring Oscar winner Kate Winslet as a struggling mother and her son who accidently brings an escaped prisoner into their lives.

In his review of the movie, Gregory Ellwood of HitFix.com wrote, "Reitman is assisted by another strong performance by Winslet who once again proves she might be the second best living actress on the planet after Meryl Streep (and she is likely the film's strongest awards player)."

Judi Dench Jason Reitman Meryl Streep Julia Roberts Tilda Swinton Tom Hiddleston Matthew Mcconaughey

As the Venice Film Festival wrapped up last weekend with its surprising award winners, led by the Roman ring-road documentary Sacro GRA, the Toronto Film Festival got underway in Canada. Both festivals are launching pads for movies seeking awards momentum, so the stars were all out promoting themselves on the red carpets.

Philomena Poster

One of the big attention-grabbers out of Venice was Philomena, the true story of a woman's search for the son she was forced to give up for adoption. The film won two top awards at Venice, and Judi Dench has leapt to the top of the list of Oscar hopefuls with her sensitive, emotionally raw performance. The film opens in November in the UK and in January in America. Watch the trailer for Philomena.

Labor Day - Clip


Adele Wheeler is the single mother of 13-year-old Henry and suffers from depression, rarely leaving her house except for reasons she can't avoid. One of those reasons arises when she has to take Henry last minute school shopping over the Labor Day weekend at the end of the summer. Whilst out, they bump into Frank; a not so cuddly looking man who is bleeding profusely and asks for their help. Adele and Henry are hesitant to come to his aid, but eventually drive him to their home where the situation takes a strange turn when they become his hostages. It turns out that Frank is a convicted killer who has escaped jail and is desperate to get on the move in spite of his injuries. Initially terrified, Adele and Henry soon realise that they are not in any danger and help him win freedom once again.

Kate Winslet (Understandably) Ducked Out Of "Labor Day" TIFF Premiere


Kate Winslet Josh Brolin Jason Reitman

Kate Winslet honored the unwritten Hollywood tradition of stars not staying to watch the premieres of their own films and skipped out on the Toronto Film Festival showing of Labor Day. However, while many actors are simply not interested in seeing themselves on screen, Winslet not attending was intentional and related to the actress’s own pregnancy, as she revealed during a rather awkward exchange at the post-screening Q&A.

Jason Reitman, Young Adult Premiere
Jason Reitman's Labor Day premiered at TIFF this weekend, but not without some controversy.

The film, directed by Jason Reitman, stars Winslet as the troubled and reclusive Adele. Her character in the film is pregnant and, without giving too much away, the intense drama features some childbirth-related moments, which quickly became the subject of discussion after the screening. While most were hesitant to bring up the topic around the visibly pregnant Winslet, one apparently foreign journalist broached the question rather indelicately. According to Entertainment Weekly, the interviewer asked: “In the screen, the pregnancies go so bad. Had you ever thought about you such a hard story in real life.”

Jeff, Who Lives At Home Review


Good
While not hugely memorable, this enjoyably ridiculous comedy has moments that are sharp, thoughtful and hilarious. And the filmmakers give their gifted cast the space to create characters who are amusing and resonant.

At 30, Jeff (Segel) is wasting his life in his mother's basement. Frustrated that he's not more ambitious, like older brother Pat (Helms), Mom (Sarandon) sends him out on an errand. But everything that happens when he's outside reinforces his belief in some sort of cosmic destiny that's guiding his every step. He also gets involved with Pat, who's showing off his new Porsche just as he learns that his wife (Greer) might be cheating on him. Meanwhile, Mom is perplexed by the fact that she has a secret admirer at work.

Up In The Air Review


Excellent
Smart and funny, this breezy and bittersweet drama carries dark resonance for a society caught in the middle of both recession and downsizing. And Clooney couldn't be more perfectly cast in this role.

Ryan Bingham (Clooney) sacks people for a living. As he flies around America trying to soften the blow, he connects with a sexy businesswoman (Farmiga) and starts a side job leading motivational sessions about minimising the baggage in your life. He also builds up a whopping frequent flier account. So when his boss (Bateman) hires efficiency expert Natalie (Kendrick) to streamline the downsizing business, he feels the rug being pulled out from beneath him.

Jennifer's Body Review


Very Good
A snappy script and a lively approach to the genre make this a gleefully grisly teen horror movie thoroughly entertaining. And it also features terrific performances that break stereotypes and pull us into the carnage.

Teens Needy and Jennifer (Seyfried and Fox) have been best pals since childhood, but their friendship has now shifted: Needy likes everyone and has a nice-guy boyfriend, Chip (Johnny Simmons), while Jennifer is the school's ice-queen babe. One night their favourite band Low Shoulder is performing at a local bar, and Jennifer has her eye on the singer (Brody). But he decides to sacrifice her to gain musical success. The problem is that she's definitely not a virgin, and her voracious hunger for boys takes a nasty turn.

Thank You For Smoking Review


Excellent
Striding up alongside such great anti-heroes as Tony Soprano and Scarface comes Nick Naylor, a silver-tongued lobbyist with such a tremendous gift for gab that he actually successfully defends the tobacco industry. And as much as you probably think cigarette makers are evil, you'll find yourself - as with all anti-heroes - actually rooting for this scumbag.

Why? Well, besides star Aaron Eckhart's flawlessly sumptuous performance as Naylor, I'll just quote a line from Naylor himself: "The beauty of argument is that if you argue correctly, you're never wrong." In the end, Nick Naylor is not just right; he's unquestionably the most passionate, most seductive man on the screen, and everyone else just looks limp and dull beside him.
