Another entry in the category “movies you may not have seen, that are totally worth watching.”

“While We Are Young” is a movie about a middle-age couple played by Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts who meets a younger couple and begins to form a bond with them.

The movie centers around the older couple’s nostalgia for their youth, and all the hope and promise of that period. The movie briefly diverges into a side plot about the mentor relationship of the two men in the couples. But overall, it’s a funny look at the futility in clinging to a period in life that has passed, but also a reminder not to envy the younger generation coming up behind you. However cool they seem in retrospect, your twenties are largely a mess.

A really cute movie overall. Not too predictable and the 4 main actors are really funny for a movie that is (strangely) not classified as a comedy.
