The popular line at the moment with regard to Jason Reitman is that the young Canadian director has lost his way a little bit since 2009’s Up In The Air, although both Young Adult and Labor Day did receive some good reviews. Reitman’s new film Men, Women & Children has already opened in the US with heavy criticism, but I like the look of it and will probably give it a whirl at some point. My interest has been piqued this week by the second of the two trailers above, which kind of emphasises the social media / disconnect angle of the film. I’m not sure if that’s actually misleading, but I thought I’d include both trailers for purposes of comparison. The second one is definitely the more intriguing.
