The internet can poison lives, but Men, Women and Children has nothing new to tell us  Online

 

The thumping great paradox of the information age, with hot red lingerie its range of communication tools that we couldn’t have begun to imagine even 20 years ago, is that we’ve forgotten how to communicate.

Where once we talked to each other, cheap lingerie sites  now we email, text, tweet. Where it used to be hormones that complicated relationships between teenagers and their parents, now it’s also Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram. Some children spend more time on games consoles than they do at school. We’re all being swept to hell, along the information super-highway.

That, in a nutshell, if you’ll plus size satin lingerieentertain such an old-fashioned image, is what Jason Reitman’s film Men, Women And Children is all about. It is based on a novel of the same name by Chad Kultgen, and although it focuses on suburban Texas, it might just as well be Tynemouth or Towcester, or any community where satellite technology has fractured understanding and empathy between generations.

Thompson’s narration then narrows in on individuals, such as Don (Adam Sandler), stuck in a stale marriage with nothing in common with his son Chris (Travis Tope) except, he discovers, a passion for online pornography.
