Movie Info

A wealthy Beverly Hills husband and wife are forced to reevaluate their lives after losing their jobs in writer-director Michael Tolkin's aloof satire. Peter Witner (Peter Weller) and Katherine Witner (Judy Davis) have become so accustomed to their high-class, shallow lifestyle that they feel helpless when circumstances leave them facing imminent bankruptcy. Lost and confused, their marriage on the verge of collapse, they seek help from a number of spiritual gurus, who offer ineffectual New Age

A sometimes smart social commentary on Los Angeles characters who seek spiritual salvation when they can't buy every object they want.

Sporadically witty but not too deep, New Age, Tolkin's second feature as a director continues to explore satirically the lives of self-abosrbed yuppies on the verge of economic and moral collpase.

Presents a scathing critique of the emptiness in the lives of a couple addicted to materialism.

I spent the entire movie alternating between checking my watch to see how much was left and wishing that one of them would realize how worthless they were.

Audience Reviews for The New Age

Wow! I am letting Peter Weller really have it lately. First for Naked Lunch and now for this film. Perhaps he ought to have signed up for a lifetime of playing Robocop. This doesn't quite work. It has it's moments but feels incomplete.

It has it's ups and downs, but ultimately as empty as these people's lives.
