While We're Young is written and directed by Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha, Greenberg, Margot at the Wedding, The Squid and the Whale). Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts play a middle-aged couple whose career and marriage are overturned when a disarming, spontaneous and untethered young couple enters their lives (Amanda Seyfried and Adam Driver). Charles Grodin, Maria Dizzia, and Adam Horovitz also star in the film which played at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, and has now been picked up by A24, but there's no indication of when the film might end up hitting theaters. Stay tuned for more info on the film.
