September 7, 2014 Comments Off on Why Jennifer Garner Worries About Social Media, and You Should, Too Articles

Are you reading this on your phone while you’re in the middle of something else? Then you’re already the subject of Jason Reitman’s Men, Women, and Children, which weaves together a series of stories about the many ways out lives are utterly consumed by the devices we own. The film stars Adam Sandler, Ansel Elgort, Judy Greer, Kaitlyn Dever, J.K. Simmons, and Jennifer Garner, who— as the mom of three kids— knows as well as anyone how tough social media can make our lives.

“It makes you feel kind of sick to your stomach,” Garner tells Krista Smith about the movie’s topics, namely the ways parenting, relationships, and everything else is influenced by our lives online. And for Garner in particular, social media buzz poses her some very specific unanswerable questions, about the member of her household about to become a superhero. “Everybody’s excited for Batman,” she admits about her husband’s big new role, while pointing out it will be another year and a half before any of us actually get to see him in the cape and cowl.

September 7, 2014 Comments Off on ‘Men, Women & Children’ star Jennifer Garner explains why she doesn’t use social media Articles

While some of the actors in Jason Reitman’s new film “Men, Women and Children” might have thought twice about their reliance on social media after making the tech-filled film, Jennifer Garner says she hasn’t changed her stance because she doesn’t use it at all.

“I’m not on social media,” says Garner, during a press conference for the film Friday.

“I don’t understand what I would have to offer – that I would be willing to give – and I certainly would never pimp out my children and that’s really what people are interested in. And I’m not going to talk about my marriage on social media. Really, other than that it’s just a time suck.”

In the film Garner plays Patricia Beltmeyer, an over-protective mom who is so scared of the impact the Internet might have on her daughter, she censors every e-mail and text message she receives.

She has even started a group called PATI – Parents Against The Internet – and holds meetings to educate other parents about the dangers lurking online, handing out pamphlets on the dangers of “selfies.”

As a parent herself, Garner (who has daughters Violet, 8, Seraphina, 5, and son Samuel 2, with husband Ben Affleck) says she plans to tackle the subject with open, frank conversations.

“Hopefully this movie will spark that for some people . . . it’s just about conversation and communication and building that trust really slowly and having really firm, clear boundaries set in place.”

“Men, Women & Children” also stars Adam Sandler, Rosemarie Dewitt, Judy Greer and Dean Norris as adults navigating the world of technology and how it has changed them and their love lives, as a group of high school students (Timothée Chalamet, Olivia Crocicchia, Kaitlyn Dever, Ansel Elgort, Katherine Hughes, Elena Kampouris and Travis Tope) try to do the same.

September 6, 2014 Comments Off on TIFF Review: Jason Reitman’s ‘Men, Women & Children’ Starring Adam Sandler, Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner & More Men, Women And Children

In 2010, a South Korean couple was arrested for starving their three-month-old daughter to death, neglecting her as they hit internet cafés to play an online game. It’s a story referenced in “Men, Women & Children” by Jennifer Garner’s hypervigilant, tech-wary Mom to other parents in the neighborhood, as a warning about the dangers of online gaming. However, the characters around her chuckle to themselves about this extreme example, knowing it’s the kind of tale that’s easily exploited by those looking to create or justify their own fears about the big, bad internet. But curiously, Jason Reitman’s film becomes the very thing it initially mocks, a “Dateline”-esque ensemble piece about the dark consequences of logging on, that tries and fails to send an overarching message about human connectivity and looking beyond your screens to the universe around you.

And that’s not just a metaphor — Reitman is unabashedly after Big Ideas, with the film’s mostly unnecessary narration by Emma Thompson framing the story as the Voyager 2 reaches the very edge of our universe (this movie is Very Serious), bringing a record of life on Earth to the stars and maybe even other civilizations. Meanwhile, back on our planet, we’re all just tweeting, texting and updating our Facebook status. In case it isn’t already obvious, Reitman, who co-wrote the script with Erin Cressida Wilson (“Chloe,” “Fur,” “Secretary”) wants to make it clear that there is so much to discover and appreciate about our existence, you just have to log off and look at the stars or at the person in front of you. Oh, and in case you still don’t get it, the film quotes directly from Carl Sagan’s “Pale Blue Dot”: “There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.” Pretty deep, right?

September 6, 2014 Comments Off on Jason Reitman, Adam Sandler and Jennifer Garner talk about today’s youth, or social media, or something Articles

After much delay, the cast of Men, Women & Children finally arrived in the Lightbox’s HSBC gallery for their film’s press conference. Men, women, children—they were all there! Including: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kaitlyn Dever, Ansel Elgort, and co-writer/director Jason Reitman (the son of Ivan Reitman, of Reitman Square and, lately, Montecito fame).

The film deals with children moving through the scary world of social media, and how all those new technologies challenge parents. Naturally, reporters grilled the cast members about how they relate to the “techno-youth of this generation” (whatever that means). “As a parent, you realize there’s stuff out there that’s harmful to everybody,” Sandler said, referring to something other than his own films, presumably. “You just try to protect ‘em.”

The cast also talked about how Reitman, a savvy social-media type, helped direct them through the challenges of pretending to use smartphones, computers and other newfangled technologies. “This technology emerged out of nowhere,” Reitman said. “It’s like the dawn of the automobile, but instead of the Model T we got a Ferrari.”

If one theme emerged, it was how genuinely unfamiliar most of the over-30 cast seemed to be with technology. Garner talked about sending hand-prepared care packages to her nieces and nephews at summer camp, while Sandler also came across like a confused Luddite. “I’m still excited that the Playboy Channel came out!” he said. “That’s not online, but it’s good stuff.”

September 6, 2014 Comments Off on Jennifer Garner Finds The Words For Save The Children Charity

On International Literacy Day on Sept. 8, Save the Children will join forces with actor and artist ambassador Jennifer Garner and other stars to host a day-long virtual word-a-thon and bring attention to the poverty-induced early learning gap.

The event is part of the organization’s newly launched #FindtheWords campaign, designed to give voice to children in poverty who hear 30 million fewer words by age three than children from well-off families.

“Every child has something to say, but 250 million children living in poverty in the United States and around the world don’t have the words they need,” said Jennifer Garner in a recently released public service announcement. An avid supporter of early childhood education, Garner will hold a virtual Q&A during the word-a-thon. “In this back-to-school season, please join me in supporting Save the Children to help kids in need #FindtheWords.”

Leading up to the big day, 30 of the top influencers in the blogosphere have been riling up their audiences and garnering support through Save the Children’s 30 Days/30 Words blogger challenge. To raise awareness, each blogger has written a post highlighting a specific, meaningful word. The 30 posts in 30 days symbolize the 30 million words too many kids miss out on.

“Each and every one of us can make a difference in the lives of all those children who continue to fall behind before they even start school,” said Save the Children president and CEO Carolyn Miles. “We call on all Americans to join us on Sept. 8 in helping shed light on this early learning crisis — we all have a favorite word, so post yours and tag it #FindtheWords.”

Save the Children provides kids from poverty-stricken communities in the United States and around the world with access to books, essential learning support and a literacy-rich environment, setting them up for success in school and a brighter future. The organization’s domestic and global education programs receive support from a variety of corporate funders, including Bulgari, Carter’s, IKEA, Mattel, OshKosh B’gosh, Primrose Schools, PVH, Scholastic and T.J.Maxx.
