Written and directed by Nancy Meyers, the person behind other popular and well executed comedies such as The Holiday (2006) and Something’s Gotta Give (2003), I had high hopes for The Intern.
Starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway, my favourite thing about Meyers’ movie has to be the story of the unexpected friendship between De Niro’s senior intern character and the successful, young online fashion business founder played by Hathaway.
A big part of what makes the relationship between the two main characters great to watch is De Niro’s portrayal of Ben, the comic timing and particularly the kind of person Ben represents.
An inspiring story of young people in charge doing what they love and doing it well is also what The Intern is about. I tuned in because the mood for a good light comedy struck and good is definitely what I found.
If you were after more reasons to watch, there’s the New York City setting, good soundtrack and the other cast members. Zack Pearlman’s character, Davis is particularly fun. Adam DeVine, Christina Scherer, Anders Holm, Rene Russo and JoJo Kushner also star.
Happy Film Loving 🙂
