Hui, what a pleasant surprise! I was watching it last night before the Martian because I had to kill time till 11pm, since all the other Martian screenings were sold out. I wasn’t expecting much, but Robert DeNiro acting against Anne Heathaway? Sure, why not. They are both great and Anne Heathaway is my secret crush, but that’s another topic 😉
So what is it about? Robert DeNiro is retired senior but feels bored of life. His wife is dead and his constant travel doesn’t give him the kicks. So he decides to take part in the senior intern program at this fashion start up in Brooklyn run by Anne Heathaway’s character.
Ok that’s the premise. It’s nothing special, and the movie won’t get any awards, but it was quite a nice little feel good movie. Robert DeNiro plays the nicest man ever. He is a senior amongst all the hip fashion people at the start up and tries to fit in, while trying to gain the respect from his boss (Anne Heathaway) who is fighting her own problems.
I don’t know what to tell you. It’s a really cute comedy drama and if you have nothing better to do go out and give it a chance. I even saw some women crying in my row next to me. So the film definitely has a heart 🙂
