Paramount Pictures has announced that principal photography for "Labor Day" has begun. Written and directed by Jason Reitman ("Young Adult," "Up in the Air"), Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin star in the adaptation of Joyce Maynard's novel of the same name. The film is shooting in Massachusetts.
According to the press release:
“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.
I adore Reitman's storytelling, and he is always a fun interview! He told me that he writes in my hood, Palm Springs. (Check out my interviews with Reitman for "Up in the Air" here, and for "Young Adult" right here)
