“Labor Day,” a romance thriller starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, might remind you of pieces of a lot of other movies.
The killer on the lam holding a lonely, depressed woman hostage in her own home made me think of Mark Wahlberg and Kate Mara in “Shooter.” As in this movie, the victim falls for the kidnapper and even tenderly dresses his wounds.
