Noah Baumbach’s “While We’re Young”

I don’t ever miss Noah Baumbach’s stuff, and “While We’re Young” appears to be very wonderfully consistent with his previous work. You haven’t seen 2005’s “The Squid and the Whale” (Academy Award nom for Noah’s screenplay), 2007’s “Margot at the Wedding” (Independent Spirit Supporting Female nom for Jennifer Jason Leigh–Noah’s now former wife), 2010’s “Greenberg” (4 Indie Spirit noms), or 2013’s “Frances Ha” (Golden Globe Actress nom for Greta Gerwig–Baumbach’s current flame)? Then get thee to your Netflix queue and bone up immediately! Each, of the aforementioned quartet, found a slot in my Top Ten film list at the end of their respective years–sans “Margot”…which missed by a hair. Mr. Baumbach penned and directed them all, and each are clearly ensconced with his increasingly distinctive style. Plus, with Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts headlining his latest feature, with ample support from Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried, and Charles Grodin–it seems like “While We’re Young” can’t possibly miss. Time to shake out the post-Oscar, early spring doldrums! Now in limited release, “While We’re Young” spreads its way into more North American cities this weekend. The above trailer entices…and Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” makes an “appearance” too!
