This engaging drama starring Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet tells the tale of an extremely improbable romance. In place of a typical romantic-comedy "cute meeting," love blooms in Labor Day when Frank carjacks a single mother at gunpoint and takes her prisoner in her own home. Unlike most carjackers/kidnappers, Frank is a good guy - even though he's a convicted murderer who just escaped from prison. Forced to lie low in Adele's house, Frank begins to fall in love with her, and Adele develops feelings for him as well. Before long, the convict, the woman, and her son develop a strange kind of family. She helps him hide from the authorities and he bakes pie and acts as a father figure to her child, but it obviously can't last forever.
