"The Intern" (2015)
And that is where “The Intern” is a triumph. This is not really a film about how great old people are and how inexperienced and ill-equipped young people are (even though there is a fair amount of that), it is a story told to remind us of certain forgotten truths. Qualities like respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, discipline, and representation are simple things that we have forgotten about in today’s “me first”, self-fulfillment, “do what feels good”, lazy, slobby generation.
But even more than any of the needed boys-today-need-to-grow-up-and-remember-to-be-men message, there are some scenes that will blow you away with their honest, vulnerable, reminders of what real relationships are. This isn’t some chick-flick with sugary film-versions of friendship and love. It goes deeper than that.
It really is one of the best films of 2015.
