The Intern is that buddy movie where the buddies are a man and a woman. It’s also a paean to being contemporary without sacrificing the best what the past has given us – and about the idea that a woman can or at least should be able to have it all. It’s also about grey power.
That all these themes are wrapped up in a slight little dramedy is something of a small miracle.
Warner Bros.’ The Intern stars Anne Hathaway as Jules, a woman who has created a company that – in a year-and-a-half – has blossomed from her home to a cool office in a prestigious building and has 250 employees.
Ben is a 70-year old retiree with ‘a hole in my life that I need to fill. Soon.’ After Mandarin lessons, learning to cook and even trying his hand at keeping plants alive, he winds up as Jules’ new intern.
