Slated for release next month, THE INTERN is a breezy comedy centered on the relationship between the frazzled founder of a fashion website start-up and her newly hired intern, a retired widower easily twice her age, who becomes best pal and unexpected support system.
A ‘rom-com’ sans the ‘rom’, THE INTERN concentrates on the possibilities of platonic friendship and is a candy-coated valentine to those of the baby-boomer generation.
Written and directed by NANCY MEYERS, the film is headlined by ANNE HATHAWAY (a welcome return to comedy) and ROBERT DeNIRO, in what is arguably his best comic performance since MIDNIGHT RUN.
During a Manhattan press conference this past weekend to promote the film, ANNE HATHAWAY was especially vocal in her praise of NANCY MEYERS. Despite (or maybe because of) this being their first collaboration, HATHAWAY was profuse in her praise of MEYERS. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
THE INTERN opens in theaters September 25.
