Men, Women & Children Review

ddddMen, Women & Children is a refreshingly honest portrayal of modern society’s social issues effecting a group of high school students and their parents, such as body image, relationships, self-esteem, infidelity and the way that technology has impacted our communication and our relationship dynamics.

The film – fittingly rated R – explores typical issues teenagers and

Men, Women & Children does not hold back with these topics, confronting the audience with emotionally raw, driven scenes with a star cast of talented, well-know actors.

Ansel Algort (from A Fault in Our Stars) plays the teenage son of Dean Norris (from Breaking Bad). Jennifer Garner (from Suddenly 30 and The Invention of Lying) plays an extremely Still from Men, Women & Childrencontrolling mother, whilst Judy Greer (from 27 Dresses and Californication) plays the exact opposite, a mum controversially influencing her daughter to be provocative. Other actors include Adam Sandler and J.K Simmons.

This film was well worth watching, I would recommend to anyone sick of watching cheesy storylines and wanting to be moved and captivated with the portrayal of reality.

I rate this 4 out of 5 stars.
