Winslet will play a woman who, along with her shy and awkward teenage son, lives in a New Hampshire town. Set in the 1980s on the weekend of the titular holiday, they offer a ride to a stranger. Although the stranger turns out to be an escaped convict, he manages to teach the boy some life lessons.
Josh Brolin has already signed onto the project, presumably in the role of the escaped convict. The film is scheduled to begin production next year.
