Now that many of us have been using social media for years it's hard for anyone to deny that the connectivity the internet provides is powerful. Social networking allows for us to share ideas, build things and meet great people, and we love this about being online! But just like with humans connecting in any environment, there can be things about our exchanges that are difficult as well, and we think this is also necessary to consider as we help ourselves and those around us build relationships that work online and off.
There is a new film being released this month that is attempting to peel back the layers of some of these harder realities we face with our loved ones in the digital age. It's called MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN from director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air) starring Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars), Rosemarie DeWitt, Judy Greer and Dennis Haysbert. It 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.
We have been invited to share a special screening opportunity with our members!
