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

Nice... We can't afford anything at the moment so it's lovely to get a freebie! I usually have the problem that these things are nowhere near me so it's a welcome change for one to be up the road and not just in London.

Ah, they're all gone. Bah. Well, if anyone can't make it, I'd still love to go.
