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.

But, hopefully his emotional performance in "Men, Women & Children" serves as a precursor to more interesting work to come. Despite its flaws, this is one of the most timely and deeply affecting pieces of work I've seen in a long time.
It's a movie that tries to tackle many subjects, all under the bubble of technology. At the forefront, we see Sandler's character struggling with his marriage and trying to work out some of his various problems. There's also several other intertwining stories, some that deal with infidelity and young love, and others that handle issues with self-image and peer pressure. They're not all equal in quality (that being expected), but each one certainly has something to say.
The most well-developed segment includes Ansel Elgort (who you may know from "The Fault in Our Stars"), playing a teen struggling with having just quit his high-school football team. We see him concerned over the meaning of life and this is only alleviated as he gets to know a girl named Brandy. Their relationship in the film is beautiful - and so is most of the movie - with a few exceptions here and there. It's a film that starts off a bit rocky and doesn't really find its footing until the first thirty minutes have past. But once it does, it proves to be shockingly true and current. These are issues that people are dealing with on a daily basis, and it handles them in a touching and true manner that can't be rivaled by the majority of mainstream movies out today.
