Storyline

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. 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.

Trivia

Co-Writer and Director Jason Reitman felt so much of the acting in the film was so based on reactions to texts, chats, and photos that using dummy screens with no text would not suffice. The production team had to create very realistic-looking versions of popular websites, all on their own tightly controlled software, with which the actors and actresses could interact in real-time. According to Reitman, they spent "the same amount of budget on creating the digital world as we did creating the physical one. People know what Facebook looks like better than they do a hotel lobby, you stare at it all day, so it had to be convincing." See more »

Goofs

The line of dialogue in the movie is presented as it was in the book - when the teacher gave the assignment on the attacks of 9/11, he claimed it was the first time a foreign force had attacked the United States, but in fact during the War of 1812 the U.S. was invaded by and Washington D.C. burned by the British. Additionally, although a territory and not a state at the time, Hawaii was a part of the U.S. when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941. See more »

Narrator: [recites extract from Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot, A Vision of the Human Future in Space] That's home. That's us. On it, everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was lived out their lives. Every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there on the mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam. How frequent their misunderstandings, how fervent their hatreds. Our ...

Really enjoyed it!
2 December 2014 | by Matthew-WHSee all my reviews

From the minute the film started i was hooked right in. This film deals with some really heavy subject matter and while we may not all relate to each individual characters story, we can all relate to how consuming technology has become and the internet. It was confronting at times but it was for good reason, it wasn't about shock factor, it was a genuine portrayal of a story. I felt for every character even when it was hard too. Ansel Elgort has a knack for ripping my heart out (Fault In Our Stars and this film). I was pleasantly surprised at how engaging and interesting this film was. While is seems to have been critiqued harshly by critics, i don't hold a film to any particular rating, i watch it for what it is and for me, not for others. I found the movie interesting, i enjoyed each character and learning their stories. Highly suggest this film but go in without a movie critic state of mind and take it for what it is.
