There’s an old adage that says that, in life, having a child changes everything. But in Noah Baumbach’s upcoming comedy drama While We’re Young, the opposite also proves to be true for a childless and indeed ageing married couple, who look to roll back the years when they grow close to two younger friends.
For the latest from Baumbach — the creative mind behind The Squid and the Whale and Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox — that middle-aged couple will be played by Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts, and the studio has now released the first trailer that shows us how the pair are prepared to go out of their way to avoid a mid-life crisis.
Such a feat inadvertently introduces them to Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried’s eclectic couple, and the foursome soon find themselves drawn to each other’s outlook on life. It’s an interesting set-up, and one that will no doubt be filled with enough charm to sink a ship, but hey, if the stars uphold a similar chemistry throughout the course of the movie, then While We’re Young could be one to keep an eye on.
While We’re Young made its first appearance at this year’s TIFF and will open in a limited release on March 27, 2015 before moving into more theaters in April.
