Sometimes the past trips you up. It certainly does Frank, the escaped con played by Josh Brolin in Jason Reitman's new drama, "Labor Day. " It definitely unravels Adele, the reclusive single mother Kate Winslet makes so fragile. It is already a defining factor for 13-year-old Henry, played by newcomer Gattlin Griffith, by the time Frank comes into their lives. What I didn't anticipate is the way the past might trip up the filmmaker. "Labor Day" is only Reitman's fifth movie, but one of the distinguishing features in his films - from 2006's "Thank You for Smoking" through "Juno" in 2007, "Up in the Air" in 2009 and 2011's "Young Adult" - is how carefully constructed they are. The dialogue may be loose, the characters quite frequently a mess, but the progression of the film from beginning to end, and the narrative links, are always solid.

- Kate Winslet will be the first to admit that the backdrop and framing of her upcoming movie, "Labor Day," is "utterly insane. " The film finds Winslet playing Adele, an emotionally fragile single mother of a 13-year-old son. She meets and then harbors and then falls deeply in love with an escaped convict (Josh Brolin) over the course of five eventful days in a small New England town in 1987. "At the end of the day, the only thing that is 'wrong' about their relationship is that he's just escaped from prison," Winslet says.

A man adrift at sea. A woman adrift in space. And a young girl all by herself in the desert. If there's a theme at this weekend's Telluride Film Festival, it's that solo travel may have its benefits but also carries more than a few risks. Colorado's Labor Day weekend festival - which is starting Thursday, a day earlier than normal, to commemorate its 40th edition - is known for eclectic programming announced at the very last minute, and it's often difficult to detect trends. PHOTOS: Hollywood backlot moments But the inclusion of three films - Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity," which stars Sandra Bullock opposite George Clooney as astronauts detached from their space shuttle by a mission disaster, "All Is Lost," director J.C.

In Warner Bros.' upcoming action drama "The Gangster Squad," based on a series of Los Angeles Times articles, Josh Brolin plays John O'Mara, a Los Angeles police officer in an elite unit devoted to cleaning up the city's criminal element, specifically targeting a mobster operation run by Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) — the movie's ensemble cast also features Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, Giovanni Ribisi and Anthony Mackie, among others. Brolin learned a lot about the film's 1940s setting from his father, actor James Brolin, and from stories he read about the real-life officers of the era. "These guys were pretty brutal back then," he said recently, sitting outside City Hall, where he was shooting scenes for the Warner Bros.
