Synopsis

Divorced mom Adele (Kate Winslet) thinks she's found love again when escaped convict Frank (Josh Brolin) unexpectedly enters her life. Initially feeling threatened, she offers him sanctuary while out on a shopping trip with her 14-year-old son Henry (Gattlin Griffith). However, when he helps out around the house, shows an interest in her boy and shows her how to bake the perfect pie, she begins to reassess her feelings towards him. Director Jason Reitman (Juno, Up In The Air) subtly conveys the message that appearances can be deceptive with a beguiling performance from Winslet as the dowdy maid who rediscovers a reason for living.
