About Men, Women & Children
Directed, Produced & co-Written by Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air), the film takes a look at technology use amongst teen and adults and ultimately how it shapes our conversations and relationships. It’s a relevant and thought-provoking film that features amazing performances from a stellar cast including: Kaitlyn Dever, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris and Adam Sandler. I hope you can attend.

About Common Sense Media
Common Sense Media is dedicated to helping kids thrive in a world of media and technology. We empower parents, teachers, and policymakers by providing unbiased information, trusted advice, and innovative tools to help them harness the power of media and technology as a positive force in all kids’ lives.
Media and technology are at the very center of all our lives today — especially our children’s. Kids today spend over 60 hours of screen time every week. The media content they consume and create has a profound impact on their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Learning how to use media and technology wisely is an essential skill for life and learning in the 21st century. But parents, teachers, and policymakers struggle to keep up with the rapidly changing digital world in which our children live and learn. Now more than ever, they need a trusted guide to help them navigate a world where change is the only constant.
MomsLA is proud to host this conversation on Twitter with Common Sense Media and Paramount Pictures. Paramount Pictures will supply and ship prizes to the winners. This is not a sponsored post.
