The Intern

Over the weekend I went to the Regal theaters to see The Intern featuring Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro. Honestly I found the movie to be very comical and light hearted. The Intern is set at a start-up company: a successful shopping website Jules (Anne Hathaway) founded called About the Fit in Brooklyn. Ben (Robert De Niro) is a retired widower with plenty of time on his hands and a seemingly bottomless reserve of can-do spirit who applies to a senior internship program. Once he’s assigned to Jules, his inexhaustible patience with her mild Type-A personality makes them an unbeatable team as she weathers the bumps of expanding her company and balancing work and her personal life. The film definitely carries the audience along in the friendship that is bonded between Jules and Ben. This may not be De Niro best work, but he does succeed at being sympathetic in the film, and I particularly enjoyed how edgy and independent Anne Hathaway portrayed Jules. If you have a chance this weekend to watch a light heart film over dinner, I suggest The Intern.
