We continue our series going through the entire catalogue of A24’s films. On this episode we are looking at 2015’s While We’re Young directed by Noah Baumbach. The film stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as a couple who hit their mid-life crisis and meet young hipsters played by Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried who re-energize them. Joining the show is Bil Antoniou host of the Bad Gay Movies podcast.
Our double bill pairings include The Darjeeling Limited (Dakota) and Being Julia (Bil). See our complete A24 Double Bill Pairings on Letterboxd.
