Do you guys remember the fall of 2013 when Bushwick hang out with Ben Stiller on the reg? While the A-lister was shooting a movie in Bushwick, he was regularly appearing at Cheap Storage building on Wyckoff Ave as well as sipping on a green juice at Owl Juice Pub. Now the movie, While We Were Young, is scheduled to be released on March 27, 2015, and the trailer (see above) was just released.
The trailer confirms our assumption that the movie will prominently feature scenes shot in Bushwick! The movie directed and written by Noah Baumbach stars besides Stiller also Amanda Seyfried, Naomi Watts and Adam Driver. While We Young tells a story of a middle-aged couple whose career and marriage are overturned when a disarming couple of 25-year olds enters their lives. And as you can imagine the couple lives in Bushwick.
Wesbite Indiewite, which gave a very favorable review to the movie stating that Ben Stiller gives the best performance in years, sheds further light on the story:
In denial about their insecurities, they discover the thrill of a new opportunity when Josh befriends the 25-year-old Jamie (Adam Driver), an aspiring filmmaker who attends one of Josh’s lectures and shares his enthusiasm for the older man’s work. Together with Jamie’s equally young and idealistic wife Darby (Amanda Seyfried), the couple join Josh and Cornelia for dinner, impressing them with their youthful energy. Before long, the quartet is giddily wandering subway tunnels and outdoor parties as if the age gap were a non-issue.
Some of the quotes and scenes from the trailer:
It’s like their apartment is full of everything we once threw out but it looks so good the way they have it. Being around them energizes you.
