I don’t blame myself for thinking that, because we’ve seen both these scenarios play out way too many times over the last few years. Minutes later as Hathaway took the stage after being introduced by the film’s director, Nancy Meyers, Hathaway had the audience in stitches as she continued her ode to Stewart. He’s diligent and reliable, but almost meets his Waterloo when he’s chosen to work as personal assistant to the company’s driven, tightly-focused founder (Anne Hathaway), who doesn’t want to be helped. Anyone who runs a business-of any size-knows how busy it can be. He is the wise fatherfigure who slowly finagles his way into her life and warms up to the gaggle of side characters, including Ostin’s stay-at-home husband Matt (Holm) and adorable daughter. The new intern is assigned to her willy-nilly, and she is feeling the pressure from her investors to hire a male CEO for her company.
It is a fantastical situation, but the performances of De Niro and Hathaway convince viewers to forget all that and accept everything offered on screen. The film has a cobbled-together feel, and I could have done without the sturm und drang concerning Jules’ faltering marriage to Matt. Watching such a movie, one plans to laugh regularly, worry a little (but not too much), and that everything will work itself out before the credits roll.
Apart from working with the legendary Robert De Niro, Hathaway was excited to take on the role of a strong, assertive female executive.
For the big premiere, Hathaway donned an embellished, one-shouldered dress from Rodarte ” s fall “15 collection.
“I really loved the vomiting scene”. The Intern is set in New York City and features an nearly entirely white cast.
In fact, she has been nominated for two Oscars and a win for her character as “Fantine” in the 2012 movie inspired by the French historical novel of Victor Hugo. This is beyond annoying, and it needs to stop.
She wrote in the magazine, “He then pops up out of his chair, starts pacing madly and says he’s cutting short the interview because of the “negative inference” of what I just said”. It’s fair to point out when a movie is not fully representing its setting.
You hate using terms like “cookie cutter” to describe a movie, but the definition fits when talking about “The Intern”. Reflecting on it now, I suppose I wanted more from that ending, proof that life doesn’t need a cheesy (and easy) happily ever after.
