Fifth about The Seventh

While We’re Young

While We're YoungWhile We’re Young: Noah Baumbach’s film approaches, at times, a broad caricature; the result, however, leaves a lot to be desired, as the comedy is not funny, the character study is not engaging or insightful and the whole is pretentious and stale. Acting is generally charmless (Amanda Seyfried is the exception, but just barely), but there wasn’t much to be done. In fact, the character gallery is uninteresting, unappealing, which makes connecting to the story hard. Sam Levy’s images are likewise unimpressive, washed-out. The use of music is all over the place, but may be the best part of the movie.
