Wondering why times are missing?

While We're Young

Indie wunderkind Noah Baumbach (Kicking and Screaming, The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding, Francis Ha) dissects two couples: an insecure pair of fortysomething Brooklynites losing touch with their youth (Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts) and a couple of twentysomething hipsters (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried) whom they "adopt" as friends. Baumbach has a lot to say about the mismatch in today's generations, and he takes his time doing so, paying attention to the little details. As in previous films, it's Baumbach's mixture of humor and discomfort and his eye for actors that ground this serio-comedy firmly in the real world. 97 minutes R.
