“The latest feature from Jason Reitman (Up in the Air, Labor Day) follows a group of 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. A sterling ensemble cast includes Judy Greer, Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, J.K. Simmmons, and Emma Thompson. Men, Women and Children is an insightful ensemble drama with an all-star cast. Its intricate plot charts the not-so-private lives of several characters whose interactions are driven by desire for connection, erotic liberation, and a sense of self-worth. A network narrative that incorporates modern technology as both storytelling device and subject of cultural critique, Men, Women & Children examines the myriad ways we communicate today — and what might get lost in transmission. A couple in a marriage devoid of intimacy want to know what it feels like to love and be loved again. A teenage girl looks for encouragement to be a more effective anorexic. Interweaving these and other poignant tales of contemporary life, the film explores the communities in which we invest our deepest secrets. Based on the novel by Chad Kultgen, Men, Women & Children is a sweeping group portrait in which each of us will recognize some aspect of ourselves”—Toronto International Film Festival. R. 119 Min.
