While We're Young

While We're Young ★★★½

Messy but charming. Baumbach makes witty observations about growing older and the Gen X/Millennial generational divide, and I admired its message of media ethics. Too bad the women characters in this are underdeveloped. It also looses a bit of steam in the third act, and the ending left me cold. Still, it's warm and funny, and the cast is great, especially Ben Stiller, Adam Driver, and the fabulous Naomi Watts.
