While We’re Young tells the story of a middle-aged couple’s career and marriage that are overturned when a disarming young couple enters their lives.
I was possibly the youngest person in the cinema when I saw this film today but age doesn’t matter when you see this film. And neither does being married, or in a relationship. There is someone in this film that you can relate to or see the perspective of. And that’s what made the film successful, for me at least.
The film is charmingly witty with both Naomi Watts and Ben Stiller having a convincing chemistry as an on screen couple. The scenes shared between the too are on point with their comedic timing as the portray their characters opposite the supporting roles played by Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried, who depict accurately what today’s twenty-something’s are like.
While We’re Young gives us a glance at the crises of a middle-aged life that is nostalgic for an earlier period of time. It shows that it’s a painful experience to look back and realise that you’ve grown up without even trying. A heartwarming story that’s a recommendation to see this easter break.
