Written and directed by the Oscar nominated Nancy Meyers (Something’s Gotta Give, It’s Complicated), The Intern stars De Niro as Ben Whittaker, a 70-year-old widower who has discovered that retirement isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin (Hathaway).
The film’s multi-generational cast also features Rene Russo (Thor), Anders Holm (“Workaholics”), Andrew Rannells (“Girls”), Adam Devine (“Pitch Perfect”), Celia Weston (“No Reservations”), Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars), Linda Lavin (Wanderlust), Zack Pearlman (“The Inbetweeners”), newcomer Jason Orley, and Christina Scherer (“Living with Uncle Charlie”).
Meyers also produced the film, with Suzanne Farwell. Celia Costas served as executive producer.
Meyers’ behind-the-scenes creative team is headed by Oscar-nominated director of photography Stephen Goldblatt (The Prince of Tides, The Help), Oscar-nominated production designer Kristi Zea (Revolutionary Road, GoodFellas), Oscar-nominated film editor Robert Leighton (A Few Good Men, When Harry Met Sally) and costume designer Jacqueline Demeterio (The Other Woman, “The Big C”). The music is by Theodore Shapiro (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Devil Wears Prada).
