great story to be with.
What happens when the old rated fells gets into an intern where people
half to his age try to make living ?
The story revolves around the old wise the man trying to make most of it on the job.
Its fun to see how things keeps on going and how gets into control of it.

The Intern is a film written and directed by Nancy Meyers. I had just heard about the film being a good one. I saw no trailers so I didn't know what to expect out of it. After the film finished, I was satisfied. It's basically a slice of life kind of film.

Plot: Ben Whittaker, a 70 year old, joins as an intern to Jules Ostin in an online fashion company.

Story and Direction: The story is quite simple. We have a man, old and alone, having to do nothing basically, joining as an intern to just make himself busy. Now that's something an old man always faces which is very beautifully shown here. Then we have a contrasting character like Jules, who is very busy and doesn't have the time for almost anything (today's working women). Both of these characters are balanced quite nicely. We also have certain characters of the office which are quite enjoyable. Also we get a sneak peek into Jules' home where she has a husband and daughter, for who she feels she is giving less time due to her job. The most of the story is perfect. I had issues with some things. Like Fiona the massage therapist. Although the character was very little, but still, trying to make Ben and Fiona a pair was kind of making the story go off track. Another thing was the office people helping Jules in one scene of a mistake made by her. I mean, don't we say we should keep our personal and professional lives separate.

Performances: Robert De Niro is a great actor and its always a joy to see him. Anne Hathaway was also good as the working woman Jules. Rene Russo as the therapist was also good in her small role. Adam DeVine as Jason was good in his comic portions. Zack Perlman and Jason Owley were good too as Ben's colleagues. Anders Holm had a sincerity in his role.

Favorite Scene: I guess it would be where Jules helps Ben open up a Facebook account. And Ben in turn tells Jules about his work. This was basically where I felt the essence of the film lied. The older and newer generation sitting and talking and sharing ideas.

Verdict: I had a great time with The Intern. It was a good film. Robert and Anne were great in their roles. Although a few missteps, but the film is still watchable.

I am giving it an 8/10.

Love It!!
Another great performance by Anne Hathaway . The story line has been developed very intricately. It includes many important issues. The concept of an internship turning into something so meaningful is also very beautful! I would totally recommend it to everyone. Especially if are in a bad place in life and you would very much like a distraction!

Excellent Movie
Movie is about hiring an intern above 65 years of age, i.e. those who have retired having hell of a work experience, rather than hiring a fresher with few months experience.. The hired 70 yr old intern steals the show..

Karan reviewed The Intern
The Feel Good Comedy of the Year!
Wonderful offering from Writer-Director Nancy Meyers that is INDEED "The Feel Good Comedy of the Year!" Robert DeNiro plays Ben a 70-year-old retiree, struggling to enjoy his days alone. When he spots an ad for a "Senior Internship," working for a successful internet start-up, he relishes the opportunity.

After getting the internship, he is assigned to the head of the company, Jules Ostin, played rather nicely by Anne Hathaway. While Jules is not so quick to appreciate Ben - or the program in general - she eventually warms up to him and the idea. The two form a strong bond, and Jules comes to see Ben, not only as an asset, but a close and trustworthy friend.

Their bond is the crux of this movie and holds it together. There is an especially uncomfortable (at first) yet heartwarming scene, where Jules invites Ben to lay down in her bed late one night on a business trip. DeNiro is spot-on as his Ben keeps one foot on the floor with a priceless expression on his face. Yet, by the end of the scene, the two of them are even closer. There is nothing Romantic about this scene, it is more about the close bonds of friendship.

I won't reveal anymore other than to say the abrupt ending was very satisfying to me. See it, you won't be disappointed!
