The Intern


Starting a new job can be a difficult challenge, especially if you're already retired. Looking to get back into the game, 70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro) seizes the opportunity to become a senior intern at an online fashion site. Ben soon becomes popular with his younger co-workers, including Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway), the boss and founder of the company. Whittaker's charm, wisdom and sense of humour help him develop a special bond and growing friendship with Jules.

Certainly an easy watch – The Intern is what you would expect from a Nancy Meyer movie. A light and airy comedy that offers great entertainment,  some good laughs, all the while somewhat muddily touching on deeper issues of women’s rights, and the elderly at the workplace.

The film’s success is thanks wholly to the performances from it’s stars - De Niro and Hathaway have a wonderful chemistry that just pops off the screen and feels utterly sincere. An original love story, and tale of unexpected friendship, The Intern is a gentle and enjoyable watch – but for me is a wait for the DVD option…. Not really worth the price of a cinema ticket.
