As Indiewire’s critic explained, “‘Men, Women and Children’ puts a lot of effort into making a grand statement about our dangerously fragmented times.” The film earned conflicting reviews after it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last week, and the discussion surrounding the topic of technology in our lives will surely go on for years to come. But does the trailer, which is shown below, make “Men, Women & Children” look like too much of a downer for anyone to even get the message?
“Men, Women & 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. Is technology and the Internet making our lives more efficient? Or are they slowly destroying us? Check out the clip below courtesy of Vulture (on the Internet!).
