Men Women and Children follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet.
And now, an international trailer has been released.
As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose – some tragic, some hopeful – as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.
Men Women and Children is directed by co-written by Jason Reitman, and stars Ansel Elgort, Judy Greer, Emma Thompson, Jennifer Garner, Dean Norris, Dennis Haysbert, J.K. Simmons, plus a rare drama turn from Adam Sandler, who was great in Punch Drunk Love. If only he’d break away from the terrible comedies more often.
The film also now has a UK release date of October 24th.
