In While We’re Young (2014), writer/director Noah Baumbach approaches the concerns of his dispirited middle-aged characters with terrific wisdom. His is a deft eye that’s focused squarely on the nuances of the human condition as we move kicking and screaming into adulthood. It’s a film about confusion and yet it is itself a somewhat confused […]
