It’s based on a Joyce Maynard novel and stars Tobey Maguire, Clark Gregg, Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin, James Van Der Beek and others. 
The novel tells the story of an alienated 13-year-old boy, his lonely mother and the stranger who comes into the lives one Labor Day weekend. (You can find the book in paperback if you'd like to read it before the movie comes out.)
Reitman was Oscar-nominated for "Juno" and "Up in the Air," both excellent movies.
