Holiday Movie Review

 

It’s Labor Day so it only makes sense to review a movie about the holiday, well set on the holiday weekend.

 

LABOR DAY

MV5BMjMxODE0NTUxNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTkzNzY1MDE@._V1_SY317_CR0,0,214,317_AL_

Written & Directed by: Jason Reitman

Starring: Kate Winslet & Josh Brolin

 

Although led by strong performances from Winslet and Brolin, the snails pacing of Labor Day left something to be desired. I’m not a fan when scenic shots blind me, so the over-the-top let’s prove it’s a hot summer’s day cinematography was annoying. What saved this movie from being a let down is the score. I was completely enchanted by each eerie yet sweet melody as each note set the mood perfectly. Also Winslet, as I hinted earlier, gave another brilliant performance that left me reeling while Brolin left me swooning as he played the escaped felon with a heart of gold. Pacing and cinematography aside, I still found Labor Day an enjoyable tale of love and longing.

  

8/10
