Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Noah Baumbach's While We're Young is a witty, quietly moving dramedy about growing up and growing old. It's likely to appeal more to older teens and adults than younger viewers, who aren't likely find its themes -- including identity crises, flirting outside your marriage, and the loss of your professional moorings -- particularly relatable. There's some kissing (including between married people and partners who aren't their spouses), a fair amount of swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and more), arguments/confrontations, some drinking, and an extended scene involving a psychedelic drug.
Some kissing, sometimes extramaritally.
Some yelling, screaming, and verbal confrontations. Talk of a soldier killing people in Afghanistan and being scarred by the experience.
Frequent but not constant strong language, including "s--t," "a--hole," "f--k," and the like.
Everyone is a work in progress, and if you don't explore what that means, you might not grow. Themes include identity crises and professional uncertainty.
