Men, Women & Children

Synopsis: Men, Women and 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.

Why would you even have him

take a photo?

I need to know what

my audience is seeing.

Anyways, I'm just saying,

it's... It's like, uh...

There's like

a natural progression.

And if you don't sleep

with somebody soon

you're gonna be completely

retarded in bed when

you're a junior and it counts.

My mom's here!

See ya, bitches!

Hi, baby!


New outfit?

Another request came in today,

so I stopped at Hot Topic.

It's cute, right?


Okay, you've read through

every solitary interaction

I've had on every

single website, Mom.

I think I'm safe

from "the predators."

Oh, really? What is this?

"U R hawt." Who is Derrick G.?


A friend of a friend?

He's an adult.

So? I can't help if some

random guy

finds my picture cute. Jeez.

I can.

Are you serious?

Well, now we don't

have to worry about him

Yeah, I'd really hate to get

any more compliments, Mom.

It could really do

a lot of permanent damage.

Honey, you know I just do this

to keep you safe.


I love you, sweetie.

I love you, too.

Okay, let me see your phone.

During these

weekly spot-checks,

Brandy would divulge every

username and password

she employed online.

As an additional precaution,

Patricia installed a device

that monitored

and recorded every keystroke

her daughter ever made.

We got six new

subscribers today.

That's awesome!

The website had been the idea

of a local talent agent.

Each time she received

an email or a new subscriber,

Hannah felt a little bit more

like a celebrity.

You sure you're comfortable?


Okay. Here we go!

Hey, Dad.

Tim Mooney quit.

No kidding?


What kind of mother

abandons her family

for California?

I've got, like,

a pretty hard test tomorrow

so I'm gonna go study.

Yeah, "studying."

What are you talking about?
