Everyone watches movies. Whether at home or out at the theater, it’s a classic American pass-time. Because of that, it’s easy to say that most people have seen some pretty tragic movies. My goal is to help with that. I’m an avid movie buff, I love to curl up and watch a new movie (hopefully a good one). So, I thought it would be fun to do a movie of the week and spread some knowledge about movies that are interesting and fun to watch! Be proud; if you’re reading this, you’re about to be here for the start of a tradition.
This week, I watched ‘The Intern.’ It starred Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro, who honestly worked so well together. The plot was that Anne’s character started an internet sensational business and became the head of an insanely successful company within the last two years but she is overwhelmed and frantic. Her company starts a PR program that recruits senior citizens to be interns. There enters De Niro, who plays an experienced gentleman who is retired but is still rocking’ it. They start to work together and everything that follows will make you laugh and cry.
It touched home on many topics and could relate to multiple interests. Maybe it could be classified as a “rom-com,” but really it was just a good movie about the reality of life and stress. I left the theater in love with an old man, inspired to follow my passions, and with the need to tell everyone I know that they should go watch this movie. Ergo, the birth of this new, weekly column. ‘The Intern’ rocked, but you should check it out for yourself because until you do, that’s just what nugget says.
