Movie "The Intern" Speaks to the Generations
The Intern , written and directed by Nancy Meyers, was a comedic look at some of the generational differences Baby Boomer and the Millennials in workplace and personal relationships.
Ben Whittaker (Robert DeNiro) is a 70-year-old retiree, who is not enjoying his retirement since becoming a widower. He answers an ad to become a "senior intern" for a company that is on an online fashion site, About the Fit, owned by Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway).
Of course, there is also a "love interest" on the scene with the on-staff massage therapist, Fiona (Rene Russo).
De Niro and Hathaway were both great in their roles, each with their own neurotic, controlling habits. They equally began to show their softer, more human sides.
The Intern takes on lessons that people in all generations need to learn. We need one another and we can each learn something new from the other, if only we could open up our hearts and minds to do so.
This film was enjoyable and and the cast of characters, that goes beyond the three mentioned, were well-suited to the story line.
