I love this trailer. Those who have been to the movies in the last few weeks have probably seen it. I saw it a couple times and was slow to react, but it got burned in my brain. Why? Largely because of the music, a sensual, slowed-down but equally mesmerizing version of the Donna Summer disco hit “I Feel Love”.
Apparently there’s a lot of covers of “I Feel Love”, mainly keeping up the pace — but this one by a group called the Plantains turns it into a haunting groove that syncs perfectly with the visuals. The soundtrack for Men, Women & Children is not available, but when it is I hope the song is included. It would help the movie, but as we’ve seen from Silver Linings Playbook, underhanded marketers will sometimes use music to promote a movie that isn’t anywhere to be found in the movie itself.

As much as I like the trailer it seems like a movie that could be either truly fabulous, or just as easily one where nothing much happens. I’m hoping for the former.
