The lovely Emma Watson shined and captivated on screen with the powerful indie drama "The Perks of Being a Wallflower". Now the actress is re-teaming with the same writer-director, Stephen Chbosky, for a new film.
The film is called "While We're Young" and it's adapted from Adena Halpern's novel "29". The story centers on a 75-year-old woman who feels more connected to her 29-year-old granddaughter than she does her 55-year-old daughter. She wishes that she could return to her 29-year-old self and spend time with her granddaughter as a younger woman but never expected such a dream to come true.
The premise feels along the lines of "17 again", "13 Going on 30" and all the "Freaky Friday" adaptations. I love both Watson and Chbosky but what gives me even more hope that this film could be special and not generic are the writers. Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter, who penned such amazing gems as "500 Days of Summer" and "The Spectacular Now" are penning the script.
