You might have forgotten about this, but right after "Frances Ha" hit the festival circuit, Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig quickly got to work shooting another movie, that, like their previous collaboration, was done below the radar. Indeed, no plot details were revealed, and neither director nor star gave away too much information about the project. In fact, Baumbach went on and made another movie afterward, "While We're Young," completed it, and debuted it at Tiff in September. Well, now it's time to circle back to the Gerwig project. Announced today as part of the Sundance Film Festival, we now have a first look at the film—titled "Mistress America"—which stars Gerwig (who also co-wrote the script with Baumbach) and Lola Kirke (the sister of Jemima Kirke from "Girls"), along with a complete plot synopsis. Here you go: Tracy, a lonely college freshman in New York, is rescued from »

Festival top brass have revealed a high-profile roster of out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres entries featuring many returning heroes, as well as a new Special Events section and panel participants including George Lucas.
Justin Kelly’s I Am Michael is likely to become a major talking point and stars James Franco and Zachary Quinto in the true tale of activist and Young Gay America co-founder Michael Glatze, who renounced his homosexuality and became a Christian pastor. The Exchange handles international rights.
James Ponsoldt’s David Foster Wallace film End Of The Tour (pictured, photo by Jakob Ihre) starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel makes the cut — Fortitude International is the international sales agent — as does the latest from the newly prolific Noah Baumbach, whose Mistress America stars his Frances Ha and Greenberg muse Greta Gerwig and arrives three months after the Toronto premiere of While We’re Young.

Never has staving off the inevitability of old age looked as simultaneously charming and cringeworthy as it does in the trailer While We're Young, the latest film from Noah Baumbach. The film centers around Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts, two fortysomethings who befriend a Brooklyn-hipster couple, played by Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried.
The film also stars the Beastie Boys' Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz as a friend trying to keep Stiller and Watts in check: "We're worried about you guys," he says at one point. "What's with the hat? You're »
Filmmaker Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha, Greenberg) is back with his latest film, While We're Young, a comedy-drama about two couples who become friends despite - but really, because of - their age difference. Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts play Josh and Cornelia, a successful New York couple who bond with Jamie and Darby (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried), discovering that the younger couple's hipster lifestyle is extremely similar to their own, about 20 years ago. Though Josh and Cornelia hang out with the younger kids ostensibly to feel young again, it's clear that their presence only makes them feel their own age. The movie debuted at Tiff with praise from critics, and it's easy to see why - the trailer is charming and relatable, and most of all, seeing Stiller and Driver as new friends both makes zero sense and all the sense in the world. While We're Young opens on »
If Noah Baumbach‘s last film, Frances Ha, was a pitch-perfect examination of young adulthood, his next one, While We’re Young, looks like an equally astute look at middle adulthood. Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts star as a 40something married couple who befriend a 20something hipster couple (played by Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried). Watch the first While […]

How Brooklyn-y does Noah Baumbach's While We're Young look? It's got well-meaning yuppies (50 Brooklyn points), bike-riding hipsters (100 points), guys in hats (125 points), Adam Driver (170 points), and a small role for a Beastie Boy (a whopping 300 points). Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts star as a middle-aged couple whose lives are reinvigorated when they start hanging out with Driver and Amanda Seyfried. So, basically: Greenberg meets Frances Ha, except everyone is nice. »

Following the success and critical acclaim for last year's hit indie Frances Ha, writer-director Noah Baumbach returns with the first trailer for While We're Young. Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried star as two couples who may be polar opposites in both age and appearance, but begin to affect each other's lives in interesting ways. As you can see in the first footage, the older couple's attempt to re-capture their youth doesn't go as smoothly as planned.
Noah Baumbach's exploration of aging, ambition and success stars Stiller and Watts as a middle-aged couple whose career and marriage are overturned when a disarming young couple (Driver and Seyfried) enters their lives. The film also stars Charles Grodin, Maria Dizzia, Maria Dizzia and Ryan Serhant. The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year, and also played at the New York Film Festival. »
“I’ve become so disturbed by younger people!” “What? Younger people?” The trailer for Noah Baumbach’s forthcoming Frances Ha follow-up While We’re Young is undoubtedly the only teaser for a Ben Stiller vehicle to frame itself with quotes from Henrik Ibsen’s The Master Builder. Older couple Stiller and Naomi Watts meet younger partners Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried and ends up wandering around Bushwick; musings on aging and maturity follow, but it’s funny anyway. It’s also very nice to see Charles Grodin back in action, in his first feature since 2006’s The Ex. The film opens March 27. »

Following some warm praise by Sos critics at both this year’s Toronto Film Festival and New York Film Festival, Noah Baumbach reteams with his Greenberg star Ben Stiller and Frances Ha‘s Adam Driver for his latest film While We’re Young. Stiller stars as a filmmaker who befriends a pair of 20-something hipsters (a hilarious looking Driver and Amanda Seyfried), while he and his wife (Naomi Watts) debate having children. The trailer filled with Paul McCartney and Wings tunes makes the film look like the late-20-somethings of Frances Ha have figured life out but have only just now “stopped thinking of himself as a child imitating an adult.” Or maybe it’s This is 40 without all the poop jokes, random celebrity cameos and bizarre Simon and Garfunkel references.

A24 has released the first While We're Young trailer online. Noah Baumbach's new film follows a childless married couple (Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts) who decide to reclaim their youth by hanging out with a young, hip couple (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried). I'm not a big Baumbach fan (although I really liked Frances Ha), but when I heard good things about the movie at Tiff, I decided to check it out and it ended up being my favorite movie of the festival. If it was theatrically released this year, it would easily be in my Top 10 of 2014. Sadly, I'll have to wait until 2015 to see it again. Hit the jump to watch the While We're Young trailer, and click here to read Phil's review from Tiff. The film opens in limited released on March 27, 2015 and expands nationwide in April. It also stars Charles Grodin, Maria Dizzia, Adam Horovitz, »

"It's like their apartment is full of everything we once threw out..." After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier in the fall, Noah Baumbach's latest film While We're Young will hit theaters next spring, and the first trailer has just arrived. Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts play a couple looking to rejuvenate their lives by hanging out with an exciting, young couple (Amanda Seyfried and Adam Driver). Sometimes the comedy in this first trailer borders on sitcom-level scenarios (see Watts in a hip-hop dance aerobics class), but Baumbach's style and writing adds charm to the proceedings. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Noah Baumbach's While We're Young, straight from A24: While We're Young is written and directed by Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha, Greenberg, Margot at the Wedding, The Squid and the Whale). Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts play a middle-aged couple whose career and marriage are overturned when a disarming, »

Noah Baumbach has forever been concerned with the crises that come during certain moments in life. And if "Greenberg" tracked middle age malaise and "Frances Ha" addressed post-collegiate uncertainty, then "While We're Young" meets them in the middle. And the results are pretty terrific. In what may be his best movie to date, Baumbach tackles both generations, and the first trailer for the movie is here. The story centers on Josh (Ben Stiller) and Cornelia (Naomi Watts), a couple whose lives have stalled into a familiar pattern. But things change when they meet hipster duo Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), who befriend the older couple, and show them the creative life that's still burning in Brooklyn. And for a while, Josh and Cornelia are re-energized, but soon, the generation gap is too difficult to bridge. The trailer sells it as a bit more of a broad comedy, but »

Noah Baumbach is a very hit and miss director for me. His films can be gorgeous (Frances Ha), and they can also be excruciating to watch (Greenberg). While We're Young is his latest film, starring Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts, and from the title and premise, it sounds like it will fall more in line with Greenberg (also starring Stiller) on the Baumbach scale of watchability. The film does have a new trailer for you to watch below. Movies about aging and trying to keep up with young whippersnappers often do not do much for me. I understand it is a thing every person deals with, but there are only so many ways of telling me to live life in the moment to the fullest. Do I really need to see another middle aged white guy try to fit in with a group of twenty-somethingsc I could be doing a myriad of other things, »

Noah Baumbach movies are prickly. Characters in films like "The Squid and the Whale," "Margot at the Wedding," "Greenberg" get under the each other’s skins, even with the best intentions. "Frances Ha" offered the writer-director a more "likable" lead, but even Greta Gerwig’s wayward millenial whittled her friends and family down to their most caustic cores. This is not a grievance — the world is prickly. Baumbach picks up on it. In the trailer for is new film, "While We’re Young," the filmmaker again dredges up a grey-shaded ensemble and weaponizes for uncomfortable laughs. In the film, Ben Stiller stars as Josh, a documentary filmmaker stuck in a 10-year fine-tuning session. Life outside the editing room is swirling chaos, his wife Cornelia (Naomi Watts) and father-in-law (Charles Grodin) also in the doc business, also up in his business. There are questions on the table - will the couple ever settle down? »
