While We’re Young – Movie

I recently saw the new Noah Baumbach movie, While We’re Young. He’s the same filmmaker behind Frances Ha, which was an absolute gem of a movie about female friendship and if you haven’t seen it, SEE IT NOW. Anyway, the premise of While We’re Young is basically that a childless couple in their 40s form a friendship with a young, free-spirited artistic couple in their 20s who force them to re-evaluate their lives.

I loved the film because it explores topics I’m interested in, including: what success means, choosing whether or not to have children, how age affects our expectations, friendships over time, etc.

Even though I’m in my thirties, I related to the older couple and how they had fallen into more comfortable day-to-day existence that their 20-something selves would probably scoff at. I think a lot of thirty-somethings can relate to the movie, especially because our paths oftentimes start to diverge from our friends causing distance and sometimes, resentment.
