“While We’re Young” Movie Review

Cornelia (Naomi Watts) and Josh (Ben Stiller) have been married for a few years and, being in their mid-40’s, have experienced the ups and downs life can throw at you.

Josh produces documentaries and has been working on his latest project for 10 years (and hearing about THAT from everyone).

Their marriage is a bit stale, but, hey, that is normal. They have had problems conceiving and Cornelia does not want to go through the medical procedures to keep trying.  But the desire is still there….

Oh, to be young and carefree….

One day, Josh is giving a lecture in his class when Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried) introduce themselves as fellow documentarians auditing his class.

Josh loves Jamie and Darby’s enthusiasm and uninformed-about-life lack of fear that gives them the freedom to plow headlong with any project that pops into their minds.

Josh and Cornelia and Jamie and Darby become fast friends….but, something is not right, and it takes Josh awhile to wake up to reality.

“While We’re Young” is a fun, interesting, tale of what it is like to realize you are getting older, but, still want to be free and enjoy life the way you used to before you were beaten down by life.  (Wow, that sounds depressing…..sorry).  Great cast, not for kids.
