When Ben sits down at his new intern desk, he salutes his right side sitting coworker and we can see his notebook at his hands. In the next shot, we can see that notebook is in his briefcase. See more »
The truth is... something about you makes me feel calm, or more centered, or something. And I could use that. Obviously.

I saw the trailer for 'The Intern' sometime ago, advertised before 'Spy (2015)'. I liked the premise and the two lead actors, so today (the premiere in Romania) I had to watch it.
I expected a fun, neat comedy but what I experienced was so much more: a great plot, brilliantly executed and acted. The jokes and fun parts were on point, and the world the movie created felt very authentic, immersive and a joy to watch on the big screen - this was helped by amazing costuming and cinematography.
The entire cast had very strong chemistry between them, and both Hathaway and De Niro were wonderful.
Overall an awesome, heartwarming movie. I walked out of the movie theater with a smile.
