I may be a resident of Cape Town, but I’ll have you know that I do not own any ironic clothing, prefer my music digital instead of on vinyl, and I don’t cultivate outlandish facial hair or take a ride to Truth Coffee on my Pennyfarthing. Yes, that’s right. I am in fact a non-hipster Capetonian, and contrary to popular belief we’re not that rare a breed. But that’s not to say that the number of young men walking around in their grandfather’s hats aren’t increasing. Hell, it’s even increasing among middle-aged Hollywood stars, as you can see in this first trailer for While We’re Young, the new dramedy from indie film fest darling writer/director Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha, The Squid and the Whale, Greenberg).
While We’re Young sees Baumbach’s Greenberg star Ben Stiller and a charming Naomi Watts as a couple of forty-somethings who find a new lease on life when they become friends with Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried, a free-spirited, bicycle-riding younger couple. While We’re Young has already played at the Toronto International Film Festival and has pulled in very strong reviews for it’s witty, very relatable characters and strong performances.
Check out the trailer for yourself.
Noah Baumbach’s exploration of aging, ambition and success stars Stiller and Watts as a middle-aged couple whose career and marriage are overturned when a disarming young couple (Driver and Seyfried) enters their lives
While We’re Young also stars Charles Grodin, Maria Dizzia, Adam Horovitz and Ryan Serhant. It has a limited opening in the US on March 27, 2015.
