Pinhole Movie Reviews


While We’re Young (2015) by tincolor

40-somethings Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts are thrust into an existential and marital crisis after meeting young hipsters Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried. Having such fully realized characters really helps this movie explore multiple themes and ideas simultaneously without ever feeling scatterbrained. There’s of course the theme that’s on the poster – the disconnect between physical age and how old you “feel” inside, but it’s also a movie about, among other things, creativity, procrastination, ambition, friendship, marriage, authenticity and loyalty. Absolutely worth watching and one of my favorite recent movies.

This was a pretty good movie. I guess my major complaint was that a lot of the movie was presented in montages, including some of the important themes you mention in your review. So characters would just mention some issue or problem but not really explore it much at all. Well, maybe that’s what life is like, too.

Also, Adam Driver is a pretty annoying dude.
