While We're Young

While We're Young

Comedy from writer-director Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha, The Squid and the Whale). Uptight New York documentary-maker Josh (Ben Stiller) has hit a creative dry patch while working on a cerebral new film, until Josh and his wife (Naomi Watts) find their jouve de vive returning after meeting a couple of spontaneous young artists (Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried).

"While We're Young is Baumbach's sparkling follow-up to his Festival 2012 hit Frances Ha. Where that film was a delightful, minimalist screwball comedy, this look at New York's creative class is a more openly funny social portrait. No film has better captured the weird, upended logic of urban sophisticates: the older ones embrace their iPads and Netflix, the young ones crave vinyl records and vintage VHS tapes." (Toronto International Film Festival)

Baumbach's own acutely observed this-is-life laffer features his most relatable characters yet.

Where he ends up going—a place of real anxiety and envy—speaks to the filmmaker’s nervy ambitions.

Never before have the effects of new tech – and intergenerational envy – been articulated so amusingly as in Noah Baumbach’s latest movie, which also happens to be his best, and funniest.

A fast, funny, smart take on generational jealousy, with Ben Stiller and Adam Driver on great form.
