While We’re Young may not be Noah Baumbach’s best film (I can’t quite decide between Margot at the Wedding, Frances Ha and The Squid and the Whale), but it is certainly his most enjoyable – and commercially viable.
It’s the story of a fortysomething couple who begin hanging around with a twentysomething couple and learning some things about themselves.
AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring, MD will be holding a special Noah Baumbach retrospective March 22-24 in advance of the opening of his newest film, WHILE WE’RE YOUNG, which opens in DC theaters on Friday, April 3. Noah Baumbach has been a leading voice in indie film for two decades. AFI is presenting a mini-retrospective of his films that explore the paradoxes of being in high school, the liberation of college, the confusion of young adulthood and, finally, the reflection that comes with adulthood. This is a ticketed event and tickets can be purchased on the AFI Silver website: http://www.afi.com/silver/.
