methodwriter85 December 9, 2015 Share December 9, 2015 (edited) I was watching The Night Before tonight, and as a newly-turned 30-year old, I realized that it had this underlying theme to it- the difficulty of trying to maintain friendships from your youth as you enter your 30's and obligations such as work and family (or your lack thereof) start to separate you from your friends. It made me think about how recent movies tend to depict a person's 30's- basically, as that time between young adulthood and middle age, where you have to to reconcile your younger, wilder self, and accept new responsibilities and that you're no longer a kid. You see that in The Neighbors, Trainwreck, and this one.... How do you think movies tend to depict age? I feel like it's changed a little...I feel like 10 years ago, most movies tended to depict a person's 30's as real adulthood time, where you're past all that angst and you're confident (and you're all played by 40-years in botox), but I really feel like there's been at least a couple of movies that tend to depict it as this "in-between" time, between youth and middle age, where you still act like a kid in some ways but you have to learn how to balance that.
