'While We're Young' Falls Short of 'Frances Ha'

After Frances Ha, I was looking forward to seeing what else Noah Baumbach had to offer. Given the stellar cast, I had expected to be compelled. But I wasn’t...

In spite of having fantastic actors involved -- especially Adam Driver and Charles Grodin, strong writing and directing talent, and a fairly engaging story – While We’re Young fell short of what it could have been and landed in a minefield of mediocrity. This is one that can be skipped.

Also, it’s 2015, do we really need more ‘white middle aged person doing cringe hip-hop related activity‘ scenes?
