When 70-year-old Ben Whittaker, played by Robert DeNiro in The Intern, shows up for his first day of work, the experience feels familiar to anyone who has ever been an outsider.
Right after I saw Anne Hathaway and Robert DiNero in Nancy Meyer's newest film, The Intern, I noticed that the negativity against Hathaway burst out once again.
The release of 'The Intern' is an opportunity to say a few things about the real world and the issues that sometimes arise when the workplace is home to different age groups, especially in places where people who are senior in age are junior in authority.
First of all: I want what Bob is having! I want to be in that senior intern program!! It looks like so much fun, and it's just what I need, although I'm not a widow and a few years younger than him.

On the high end, the weight of this problem is not heavy, particularly when production is responsive to workers' needs and safety; consumers do not buy as much as is needed to stay competitive in the "fast fashion" business model, where the poor are at risk of deplorable work conditions and low wages to keep churning out goods that no one really needs, and actually makes no one happy.
Biopics are often the critics favorites as well, frequently proving themselves as Oscar and Golden Globe contenders. Plus, given the variety of biopic categories, there's something on the menu for everyone.
The plucky Shrunken Shakespeare Company has had some pretty big scores for their productions and parties considering they've only been around since 2012.
If you Google why do, the first search entry that comes up, that finishes the question for you, is why do dogs eat poop. How does the human brain work? How does the theory of relativity work? Nah.
This week's opening of the American Ballet Theater's Othello at the Metropolitan Opera House, a version of Shakespeare's tragedy about the warrior king who succumbs to the manipulations of an ensign, and murders the love of his life, marks ABT's commitment to newer works.
Synchronicity can be a scary, shocking and ominously timely thing. Only days after Barack Obama apologizes for a drone killing hostages held by al Qaeda in Pakistan, George Brant's Grounded opens.
With the second season officially scheduled to premiere on June 21, and an entire new cast which includes Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdam as the next "true detectives," my feminist part in me has already begun to imagine a third season consisting of two female detectives.
