While We're Young

UK Release Date: 3rd April 2015

A middle-aged couple's career and marriage are overturned when a disarming young couple enters their lives (

Director: Noah Baumbach (Greenberg, Frances Ha)

Cast: Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried

While We're Young mixes an older generation of folks with a new generation of folks. Josh (Stiller) and Cornelia (Watts) are a couple in their 40's who become enchanted by a free-spirited couple nearly half their age. Jamie (Driver) and Darby (Seyfried) bring out the best (and the worst) in them. They experience things they never considered before, at the expense of their other, maturer friends. There's more to the younger couple than meets the eye, which is painstaking, as it strings us along until it becomes unbearable to watch. Stiller and Watts are tremendous, stuck only by the odd story and its conclusion. Driver and Seyfried are bothersome from the start. While We're Young is about accepting the aging process. We can do anything we put our minds on.
