Jason Reitman’s “Men, Women & Children” comedy-drama trailer

PanARMENIAN.Net - A trailer for Jason Reitman‘s next film, “Men, Women & Children”, hit the web, TheWrap said.

The “Juno” and “Up in the Air” director is coming off the bummer bust of his adaptation of the book “Labor Day,” which mixed crime and melancholy into a period piece starring Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet, who played a woman entirely disconnected from the world. This time around, Reitman presents a more contemporary setting, with cell phones and technology causing so much interconnection that people are miserable all over again.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Adam Sandler likes hookers, his wife Rosemarie DeWitt likes at least one other man, “Short Term 12” star Kaitlyn Dever feels left out, Jennifer Garner is mopey, “Fault in Our Stars” breakout Ansel Elgort isn't sure how to text, and all in all, it's tough living in the suburbs.

Below is the synopsis of the film, which is adapted from a book written by Chad Kultgen and debuts at the Toronto Film Festival:

“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. 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.
