The New Age is a 1994 comedy-drama film written and directed by Michael Tolkin and starring Peter Weller and Judy Davis.[2][3]


Peter and Katherine Witner are Southern California super-yuppies with great jobs but no center to their lives. When they both lose their jobs and begin marital infidelities, their solution is to start their own business together. In order to find meaning to their empty lives, they follow various New Age gurus and other such groups. Eventually, they hit rock bottom and have to make some hard decisions.
