Nancy Meyers brought yet another fun filled, family movie to the big screen called “The Intern.”
70-year-old Ben Whittaker, played by Robert De Niro, was a retired, widowed man. He was eager to jump at the opportunity to become a senior intern for an online clothing store. His boss Jules Ostin, played by Anne Hathaway, soon became very fond of Ben after he gained popularity with his co workers. Whittaker’s charm and old soul made a very special bond between the two helping to build their strong friendship throughout the movie.
The movie entertained my family the whole time. It was a great movie for all ages and had a great range of actors and actresses. I enjoyed seeing Hathaway play someone who was so stern and uptight because I usually never see her like that but, by the end of the movie she had loosened up and was playing her usual role.
De Niro has always been one of my favorites and I loved seeing him play someone with charisma and a good sense of humor but still had an old soul.
I also loved the setting of the whole movie. I really like the big city atmospheres and the movie wouldn’t have been the same if it wasn’t in New York. Meyers trademark is for the main characters to have gorgeous kitchens and that trademark was upheld in this movie with a very contemporary kitchen in Ostin’s home.
All in all I would rate the movie a 5/5. I didn’t find anything I didn’t enjoy and I think a family could enjoy this movie because I didn’t find anything to be too inappropriate. Meyers did a great job bringing a story of friendship to the world.
