Synopsis / Plot
An uptight documentary filmmaker and his wife find their lives loosened up a bit after befriending a free-spirited younger couple. Josh (Ben Stiller) and Cornelia Srebnick (Naomi Watts), happily married middle-aged members of New York's creative class. After trying and failing to start a family, they both begin to realize that something is missing from their lives. 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 Boys' Adam Horowitz in a sly supporting role - to trail after these young hipsters who seem so plugged in, so uninhibited, so Brooklyn cool.
