[Jason Reitman] has taken himself far too seriously, producing a film so ruminative and honeyed and dull that the final scenes start to resemble a terrifying and treacly recurring dream, in which no one seems to be able to leave town.
Too often, 'Labor Day' feels like a sternly resolved, self-consciously determined break from that tradition, a filmmaker deciding "I am making a Serious Drama" and steadfastly refusing to allow even a note of levity into the proceedings.
With one of Kate Winslet's most layered, resonant performances, this film is definitely worth a look, even though the indulgent filmmaking style pushes it perilously close to Nicholas Sparks-style sappiness.
