Ahead of the release on March 21st of the new Paramount Pictures film Labor Day featuring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, we have been asked to find around lots and lots of Mumsnetters plus friend(s) to attend an exclusive preview screening of the film at a variety of locations across England. This is a great opportunity to see a new movie ahead of its official release at one of these fab MN screenings for grown ups only (no under 12's allowed)

You can view the film trailer here:


Labor Day stars: Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin, Gattlin Griffith and Tobey Maguire

Synopsis: From Academy Award® winning director Jason Reitman, 'Up In The Air', 'Juno', comes 'Labor Day'. A story that centres on 13-year-old Henry Wheeler, who struggles to be the man of his house and care for his reclusive mother Adele (Kate Winslet) while confronting all the pangs of adolescence. On a back-to-school shopping trip, Henry and his mother encounter Frank Chambers (Josh Brolin), 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.

Release: March 21, 2014
Cert 12a

I'm in. Now which friend deserves a treat too?

Lighthousekeeping Fri 07-Mar-14 18:29:32

I think I will be hard pushed to find a friend to go with! Not such a fan of Kate. I'm looking forward to going though.

GinSoakedMisery Fri 07-Mar-14 18:33:18

Oh excellent! Saw this previewed a while back and looks good.

Funnyfoot Fri 07-Mar-14 19:46:17

Thanks mumsnet. Told DH we have free tickets to the cinema but erm haven't told him what we are seeing! wink

drinkyourmilk Fri 07-Mar-14 20:40:35

But I live in Brighton! Wail!

Stripytop Fri 07-Mar-14 21:28:37

Gosh, that was easy. Thanks mumsnet!

AmandinePoulain Sat 08-Mar-14 07:42:41

Are Welsh and Scottish mumsnetters not good enough to be reviewers then? hmm

Gracelo Sat 08-Mar-14 07:45:54

Or Northern Irish reviewers?
I was just about to ask the same Amandine

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 08-Mar-14 08:30:24

Sorry if it's not in your area.

Gracelo Sat 08-Mar-14 08:44:48

Ann I live so rural nothing ever is in my area.
I think what is a bit annoying though is to have "Nationwide" in the title and then it is only about England. This sort of thing really annoys many Scottish people (and I bet the Welsh and Irish) and really, I could do with fewer reasons for grievances, at least until the referendum is over in September.

AmandinePoulain Sat 08-Mar-14 08:52:20

It's really not nationwide at all - all the screenings are either in the north of England or London. Why is that? Why not spread it out a bit more, have one in Bristol or Cardiff, or Glasgow or Belfast? confused Who thinks up these things and why?

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 08-Mar-14 09:34:44

Have amended title.

Mignonette Sat 08-Mar-14 16:59:58

Kate Winslet (in an interview with Chrissie Wood in US Vogue) slagged off Mumsnet.

Think I'll pass.

Lighthousekeeping Sat 08-Mar-14 18:26:12

She's lost her popularity. No one wants to come with me!

glammanana Sat 08-Mar-14 20:13:29

Ah ! won't let me in says access code is an error hmm

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 09-Mar-14 08:53:15 try again as it should work fine.

glammanana Sun 09-Mar-14 09:14:42

Thanks AnnMumsnet all done now must have had gremlins on

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 09-Mar-14 09:48:15

smile enjoy the film!

glammanana Sun 09-Mar-14 15:32:25

This cinema complex just happens to be in Liverpool One shopping complex so I can feel a bit of a shopping afternoon coming on before the film grin

Cataline Sun 09-Mar-14 22:24:57

All gone for the one near me!

craftynclothy Mon 10-Mar-14 11:06:31

Yay, I got one. Now to tell Dh that I'm going to the cinema for a third time this month blush
