While We Are Young

Download --->

Middle-aged couple Josh and Cornelia Srebnick are filmmakers living in a shaky marriage in New York City. Josh has spent the last 10 years struggling on the post-production of his documentary film about leftist intellectual Ira Mandelstam while not letting his producer wife help him with the project.

After finishing a lecture at the college where he teaches, Josh is approached by Jamie and Darby Massey, a young couple who invite him and Cornelia out to dinner. Jamie claims to be a fan of Josh's work and the works of his accomplished documentary filmmaker father-in-law, Leslie Breitbart. Josh is immediately awestruck by Jamie and Darby's non-conservative outlook on life as he and Cornelia begin spending more and more time with them, joining in on their bohemian lifestyle.

An aspiring filmmaker himself, Jamie talks with Josh about their projects, including Josh's own documentary. This inspires Jamie to make a film about connecting with an old high school friend that he found on Facebook. Jamie and Darby invite Josh and Cornelia to an ayahuasca ceremony where a hallucinating Cornelia kisses Jamie while Jamie receives Josh's approval in helping with the production of his film. Cornelia agrees to produce the film. Jamie and Josh find the old friend, Kent Arlington, who is in the hospital after a suicide attempt. Josh and Jamie discover that Kent was involved in a civilian massacre during an Army tour in Afghanistan, creating an even bigger story for Jamie's film.

One year later, Josh and Cornelia drive to the airport for a flight to Port-au-Prince, Haiti where they will adopt a newborn baby. Josh finds an article in a magazine lauding Jamie as a filmmaking genius, which Cornelia and Josh pass off by admitting, "He's not evil, he's just young." They then watch a young child at the gate playing with an iPhone, studying him as if to imply that yet another generation with disparate ethics and morals is approaching.

While We're Young is an interesting film that provoked mixed feelings upon a first viewing. While the film covers complex topics about getting older - the character development and plot seem messy at times and it concludes in a very inconsistent film. Getting older is an odd business. We know it happens to us, every day, every month, and every year. And yet, it also sneaks upon us. Hell, I feel I'm getting older every second of the day sometimes. Writer-director Noah Baumbach's film provides an interesting insight on the young and the "old". The film somehow makes us feel like our zest for life is rapidly depleting and our time is running out.

The initiative will be introduced in five different 30-second PSA spots starring Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer, Annika Sorenstam, Paula Creamer and Clint Eastwood. Each spot reinforces the playfulness of "While We're Young" and pinpoints aspects of the game that contribute to slow play, while also inviting golfers to make a personal pledge to combat slow play at

Parents need to know that Noah Baumbach's While We're Young is a witty, quietly moving dramedy about growing up and growing old. It's likely to appeal more to older teens and adults than younger viewers, who aren't likely find its themes -- including identity crises, flirting outside your marriage, and the loss of your professional moorings -- particularly relatable. There's some kissing (including between married people and partners who aren't their spouses), a fair amount of swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and more), arguments/confrontations, some drinking, and an extended scene involving a psychedelic drug.

Josh (Ben Stiller) and Cornelia (Naomi Watts) are Manhattan fortysomething professionals -- he's a documentarian who's been working on his second movie for nearly a decade, she's a producer for her iconic filmmaker father (Charles Grodin). They're comfortably ensconced in their marriage, but that well-worn idyll is disrupted when they meet Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), a twentys
