You’re never wrong for doing the right thing… but I’m sure Mark Twain said that once before. – Ben (The Intern)
When his wife passes away Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro) decides, after trying out all the hobbies he’s ever thought of trying, to rejoin the workplace. After he sees flyers for Senior Interns at a online clothing company, he creates a video resume and sends it in.
After passing the interviews with several of the staff he assigned to Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway) who founded the company. At first Jules ignores him, but over time she begins to wonder how she ever made it without him. Ben becomes more than just an intern, he’s both a confidant and a friend who will tell you like it is even if you’re not so sure you’re ready to hear the facts.
There are definitely serious parts of the movie, but there is also a fair amount of comedy mixed in as well. Specifically… the scene below.
I absolutely adored this movie. The storyline, the characters, the setting, just everything. I wish our office space was like the one in the film, I liked openness where everyone can be together but still in worlds of their own. Then there is the Brownstone where Jules and her family live… I want to live there!
