Noah Boaumbach's comedy While We're Young stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as Josh and Cornelia, a childless New York married couple in their mid-forties. As their other friends all start having children, the couple gravitates toward a young hipster couple named Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried). He's an aspiring documentary filmmaker, a vocation Josh already has. Soon the older couple begins enjoying the energy they feel haging out with the younger generation, but eventually Josh begins to suspect his new best friend might not be as straightforward and trustworthy as he thought.

'While We're Young' is timelessly funny film
It’s bittersweet that someone a decade younger than me has made the best movie I’ve ever seen about the diminishing siren of youth. For reasons both intrinsic and extrinsic, Noah Baumbach’s “While We’re Young” is my favorite film of the year. And it features the best performance of Ben Stiller’s career. Baumbach (“The Squid and the Whale”) is a discomfiting filmmaker, but his satire has never been as sharp as this. If he’s worried in real life about compromise and the encroachments of age, he shouldn’t. Only an artist at the midpoint between the maypole and the mortuary could concoct a comedy as potent as “While We’re Young.” - - - (Three and a half stars out of four) - - - Joe Williams / St. Louis Post-Dispatch
