My Favorite Movie of the Year!

So about a month ago I got to see the screening of the movie The Intern before it went out in theaters. I found the movie absolutely heartwarming & by far the best movie of the year and that was the feedback I gave to the people working the screening as I left the theater.

It has truly been years since I have liked a movie as much as this. The story is about Ben (Robert DeNiro) who becomes a senior intern for an online fashion company run by Jules (Anne Hathaway). Jules basically thinks the senior intern program is a big joke and wants nothing to do with Ben.  Ben goes above & beyond trying to do things that will help Jules company, and eventually Jules comes to depend on him and even thinks of him as a "friend". But really the basis of the movie is about this platonic friendship between an older gentleman and a younger woman, where Jules brings meaning to Ben's life & he is a bit in awe of all that she has been able to accomplish and Ben brings support, advice, and grounding to Jules life.  I laughed so hard during this movie and a few times I was almost brought to tears.  Very touching and inspiring movie...

My favorite quote from the movie is when Anne Hathaway says "How in one generation have men gone from guys like Jack Nicholson & Harrison Ford to..."
