Movie Review: ‘The Intern’ Shows How Kindness of A Stranger Could Change Someone’s Life

Published

on

‘The Intern’ is a 2015 American buddy comedy-drama film directed, written, and produced by Nancy Meyers. The film stars Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, and Rene Russo, with supporting performances from Anders Holm, Andrew Rannells, Adam DeVine, and Zack Pearlman.

The plot follows a 70-year-old widower who becomes a senior intern at an online fashion website, where he forms an unlikely friendship with the company’s workaholic CEO. The film was released on 25 September 2015 by Warner Bros.

What ‘The Intern’ Is About

It is actually about a guy named Ben Whittaker, and he’s a retired, well-off widower in Brooklyn who’s bored with the relative inactivity of his current, pleasant mode of living. So he applies for a position in a ‘Senior Intern Program’ at an e-commerce concern called ‘About The Fit,’ and winds up reporting to its founder, Jules, an exemplary, for Meyers, 21st Century entrepreneur type; not too far beneath her sunny exterior, after all—is a highly driven and possibly blinkered go-getter.

He has a hard time being of service to Jules, whose relentless focus makes her immediately distrustful of anyone who has an insight as to how she conceives and runs her business. And the movie is rather good at the details of that business, and the way that Jules’ vision for it defines its practical particulars.

But Ben manages to get into Jules’ good graces partly via patriarchal stealth, as when he confronts Jules’ driver after seeing him take a few nips out of a paper bag right before the soon-to-be-ex-employee is supposed to take her to a meeting in Manhattan. Ben’s internship happens to coincide with a challenging period in the growth of Jules’ company.

Through all of this Ben maintains a careful, empathetic watch—early in their relationship, Jules pinpoints her discomfort with him as arising because he’s too ‘observant’—and when he steps in to offer help, he does so in a discreetly chivalrous way that actually runs counter to any ‘here comes daddy to save the day’ expectations. Ben, as it happens, genuinely admires Jules.

What Can Be Said About ‘The Intern’

The scenes of ‘The Intern’ are delivered in a comedy package that, for the most part, is sane, sweet, and smart, and a lot of the time, actually funny. It was a sweet and moving tale of finding purpose after retirement. I also was sweet and had a lot of warmth in it.

It could be categorized as a feel-good movie that has two of the finest actors. Both the characters have been etched well and provide a good liking. It also delves into the less approached strong woman roles in the male-dominated startup world.

So many lessons can be learned from this particular movie. People should always be open-minded about everything and should never limit their potential just because of their age.
