To lull you out of the haze of Oscar prestige movies, here's a taste of what awaits us next March: Noah Baumbach's fantastic new film, While We're Young, about a couple in their 40s who find inspiration in a younger couple who live in a Bushwick loft, use typewriters and watch movies on VHS. While We're Young also makes cinematic history, with a scene showing a Beastie Boy wearing a baby in a sling.
Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts play a content but complacent older couple, whose best friends (Maria Dizzia and Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz) have a new baby. Then Stiller's and Watts's characters become entranced by the lives of a pair of happy-go-lucky hipsters (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried) and are suddenly thrown into the world of sidewalk beach parties, hip-hop dance classes and fedoras.
The film won raves at the Toronto Film Festival in the fall and was the "surprise" screening at the New York Film Festival. Heartfelt and hilarious, While We're Young is will be released on March 27, 2015.
