Sweet, sensitive, thoughtful movie - so much better than I expected

A retired 70-year-old widower, Ben (played by Robert De Niro), is bored with retired life. He applies to a be a senior intern at an online fashion retailer and gets the position. The founder of the company is Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway), a tireless, driven, demanding, dynamic workaholic. Ben is made her intern, but this is a nominal role - she doesn't intend to give him work and it is just window dressing. However, Ben proves to be quite useful and, more than that, a source of support and wisdom.

Good, and surprisingly so. I was expecting a farcical half-baked comedy about how an old guy rejoins the work force and struggles with modern gadgets and work processes. There are a few examples of that but the movie is far more than a story about generational differences. It's more a drama than a comedy, and is a good one too. There's themes of generational wisdom, not judging people by their age (or anything superficial) and making the most of people's talents. It's also a movie about starting over, and doing what you enjoy.

Moreover, it's simply a nice story.

Solid work by Robert De Niro in the lead role. He doesn't do bad performances, but that hasn't stopped him in the past from taking on roles and movies that are well below his standards. This is not one of those roles or movies. Sensitively played, and ideal for the role.

Good work too by Anne Hathaway, who is very convincing as the go- getting entrepreneur.

Entertaining for all ages

Enjoyable film about a woman trying to have it all.

Disappointed about the storyline with the husband. I really wanted her to kick him to the curb after dallying about.

Otherwise Robert DeNiro and Anne Hathaway were lovely and had great chemistry (friendly) onscreen.

Worth a rental!

Good Cast, Terrible Story

At first glance this movie seems like a decent movie but it's really not...

Synopsis: A privilege white woman with mommy issues and too much opportunity starts a business off an unoriginal idea (cause online clothes shopping is nothing new), gets sad when she's too successful and starts an inappropriate friendship with an old intern who decided that a life time of working and having the chance to actually retire is too boring in a world where millions of people can only dream of retirement one day and decides to apply to work for said white woman for free.

Said woman is riddled with guilt about her success because her spoiled hipster husband stays at home, contributes nothing but minimal parenting responsibility and then decides to cheat because his ego is so fragile that he can't stand his wife being a successful human being. Over the course of a month (or maybe 2?) nothing changes except that said woman stays with piece of child man child after a half ass apology. Old guy who had a lifetime of happiness with his now deceased wife gets a girlfriend because being alone is bad. Ends with Tai Chi session in a park in downtown New York (somehow?) to symbolize how hard life is for white people and sometimes you just need to appropriate Chinese culture to make yourself feel better.

Overall, this movie has no substance to it. But the cast is nice to look at, I guess.
