This weekend, Zac Efron and his friends are out looking for love in "That Awkward Moment," while Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet throw caution to the wind and heat up the screen in Jason Reitman's "Labor Day."
Starring Zac Efron, Miles Teller, and Michael B. Jordan, "That Awkward Moment" is an R-rated comedy about three best friends at crossroads in their dating relationships and each searching for love. Written and directed by Tom Gormican, the movie offers plenty of raunchy laughs from its young stars, as it examines that confusing point in a relationship when you have to decide "So...where is this going?" Directed by Jason Reitman, "Labor Day" stars Kate Winslet as Adele, a depressed single mother, who is forced to harbor a wounded, fearsome-looking man (Josh Brolin) after he threatens to harm her 13-year-old son, Henry. After taking him in, Adele and Henry learn that the man is an escaped convict, but the lonely mother and son appreciate the male presence in their home and soon begin to have feelings for the fugitive.
