Cuando Phillip Greenberg (Chris Messina) lleva a su esposa y niños por un viaje muy largo al extranjero, Florence es de repente dejada a la deriva. Florence Marr (Greta Gerwig) es una aspirante a cantante que lucha por encontrar su lugar en el mundo. Ella trabaja como ayudante personal de la familia Greenberg y ocasionalmente le da un vistazo a la casa de los Greenberg dónde ahora se encuentra Roger el hermano de Phillip (Ben Stiller), que ha venido a L.A. a cuidar de la casa. Solo y con cuarenta años de edad, Greenberg es inteligente, ingenioso, de lengua mordaz pero como Florence, tiene algo perdida su alma; él está en una encrucijada en su vida pues después de trabajar cómo carpintero tras una corta y frustrada carrera musical ahora vive de redactar cartas de queja para diferentes empresas con lo que vive de las compensaciones que le dan por ellas. El buscará a sus viejos amigos de su banda sin embargo se dará cuenta de que las cosas ya no son cómo antes y de que todos sus amigos han continuado con sus vidas mientras el se ha quedado estancado. Esta vulnerabilidad atraerá a Florence quién se verá envuelta en una conexión excéntrica, loca y sin sentido y pronto tendrán esa razón de reencontrar su camino a la felicidad y reiniciar sus vidas juntos. (Título original - Greenberg)

Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts are Josh and Cornelia Srebnick, happily married middle-aged members of New York's creative class. They tried to start a family and were unable to — and have decided they’re okay with that. But as Josh labors over the umpteenth edit of his cerebral new film, it’s plain that he has hit a dry patch and that something is still missing. Enter Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), a free-spirited young couple, who are spontaneous and untethered, ready to drop everything in pursuit of their next passion — retro board games one day, acquiring a pet chicken the next. For Josh, it’s as if a door has opened back to his youth — or a youth he wishes he once had. It’s not long before the restless forty-somethings, Josh and Cornelia, throw aside friends their own age — including Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz in a sly supporting role — to trail after these young hipsters who seem so plugged in, so uninhibited, so Brooklyn cool. “Before we met,” Josh admits to Jamie, “the only two feelings I had left were wistful and disdainful.” But is this new inspiration enough to sustain collaboration and friendship with a couple twenty years their junior? While We’re Young is an openly funny cross-generational comedy of manners about aging, ambition and success, as well as a moving portrait of a marriage tested by the invading forces of youth. No film has better captured the weird, upended logic of urban sophisticates: the older ones embracing their iPads and Netflix, the young ones craving vinyl records and vintage VHS tapes. Powered by Stiller and Driver's note-perfect lead performances and loose, comic turns by Watts and Seyfried, While We’re Young is a complete pleasure to watch.
