Taking About Labor Day the Movie


I'm late with this info but I just had to share it. It appears Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin have been signed to appear in the film version of Labor Day by Joyce Maynard. The other good news? It will be directed by Jason Reitman (best known for his work on Juno and Up in the Air). I was really moved by Labor Day and can not wait for this movie. I think it is because I have a tender place for stories with wounded souls that find peace and home in one another.
Have you read it? What do you think of the casting? Click here for my review of Labor Day.

Side note: I love this cover but I can not look at it without mentally singing "Peaches" from the band
The Presidents of the United States of America (1995). Remember that band?

  9. I've never heard of this one, but Kate Winslet seems to rock any role she gets. I'll have to look out for the movie although I already have a feeling the book is better.
