Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts play a middle-aged couple who are aiming for a second shot at remaining young hipsters in While We’re Young. Josh Srebnick (Ben Stiller) and Cornelia Srebnick (Naomi Watts) are two happily married creative artistes from New York. They once upon a time attempted to have their own family, but were unable and they have long since then, made their peace with that.
Josh gruels over his latest new intelligent film because it is obvious to everybody that he has hit a rough spot and comething crucial is still lacking. Precisely at this moment, he meets a young couple Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried) who revolve around a carefree approach to life.
They move from obsession to another without a damn care at all, and with relative simplicity, inspiring Josh to reinvigorate his youth once more in his life. The older couple then starts to ditch their friends for spending time with the younger crowd, and comes to the conclusion that their own lives might not be that bad, after all.
