From the director of 'Juno' 'Up in the Air' and 'Thank You for Smoking' comes the trailer and poster for his latest film 'Men Women & Children'.
'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.
The star-studded cast includes Adam Sandler, Emma Thompson, Rosemary DeWitt, Jennifer Garner, Kaitlyn Dever, Ansel Elgort, Judy Greer and J.K. Simmons just to name a few!
The film is based on the novel of the same name by Chad Kultgen. Jason Reitman is also the producer and co-wrote the screenplay with Erin Cressida Wilson. The film is distributed by Paramount Pictures. After having been nominated for 4 Oscars for writing, adapting and directing we will have to see how this plays out during Award season!
Check out the teaser trailer below:
The film is set to premiere at TIFF(Toronto International Film Festival) in September. The film will have a limited release on October 3rd and then a worldwide release on October 17th.
