Jason Reitman's 'Men, Women, & Children' Poster & TrailerJason Reitman Posters Trailers
Jason Reitman's new film, Men, Women, & Children just snuck up on all of us and it seems like it's going to be a thrilling ride. Based on the novel of the same name by Chad Kultgen, the story follows a group of high school teenagers and their parents, as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their form of relationships, communication, and lifestyle. The film has a great cast starring Ansel Elgort, Adam Sandler, Judy Greer, Jennifer Garner, Dennis Haysbert, and Rosemarie DeWitt to say the least! The trailer comes off like a mood piece, spotlighting on various characters and their different experiences with technology. The story seems to be delving in the serious aspects and effects of the internet like video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame-hunting, and just the prolific illicit materials on the internet(s).
TIFF is going on right now and many of you have already heard from other critics their opinions but it'll be interesting how each person consumes this powerful story of our digital times. Every person has their own experience with the internet and how it has affected them for the better or worse. This kind of special millennial experience is a subject that I've seen incorporated in films nowadays with text bubbles popping up here and there but this has to be the first where it discusses and dissects the effects it has on us as a society. I can't wait to see! And with such a stacked cast, I'm sure Oscar Buzz is not too far away. Men, Women, & Children comes out October 17!
