It’s common fact that I love movies and that I especially love sharing movies that I find interesting.
I went on a me-date on Saturday and went to see “Men, Women & Children” and it truly was a fascinating experience.
I hadn’t seen many of the previews, so I wasn’t anything of the film, but I knew it was about our Internet/texting-dependent lives. But I was excited because of the cast (hello, they put Jennifer Garner and Ansel Elgort in a movie!) and nonetheless took time out of my Saturday to go to the cinema.
When I stepped out of the theatre, I felt a bit numb. This only happens when I see movies that are either really amazing or have had a profound impact on me. I think “Men, Women & Children” did a little of both to me.
“Men, Women & Children” is truly about the effects of using the Internet. Whether it be to sext or distract yourself from reality or to find a new mate, this movie encompasses the way the Internet affects our everyday lives and relationships with others. As someone who uses the Internet to communicate and hone her art (60% of my Internet time is working on this blog) it was fascinating to see people who let their lives change so drastically from the Internet’s appeal.
I don’t want to spoil the film for anyone, but I do want to say that seeing this film is important if you want to understand correct usage of the Internet and the consequences of what can happen when you don’t use it correctly. There is a chance you will cry at some point (I know I did at the end) and there’s a chance you’ll be feeling extra virginal during the awkward porn scenes. It’s a movie that makes you think and opens your eyes. It’s a 10/10 recommendation.
I encourage everyone to see “Men, Women & Children” regardless of your age. It will truly teach you something.
With all that said, thanks for reading and go see the movie!
Stay classy, Internet,
