Youth director Paolo Sorrentino talks to SHOOT about the impetus behind his nuanced drama about two old friends trying to grapple with aging.

"The recurring question I have, which is if one has a chance to become really old, what does that person think about his future?" says Sorrentino. "Are there any expectations about his future? In this film, we explore old individuals and their relationships with both the future and the past.”
