Hollywood Asks: 'What If the Intern Is 70?'

Experience never gets old in a new multigenerational comedy

By Sue Campbell

Since Next Avenue launched, we’ve been all for cross-generational mentoring at work. Now the idea, once rarely discussed, is driving a new Hollywood mainstream film starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway: The Intern.

And while there are predictable age gags in it, for instance, asking the 70-year-old intern where he’d like to be in 10 years, it seems the movie will take seriously the concept of learning from someone who’s not in your peer group.

Check out the preview clip and let us know if you think you’ll watch when it’s released Sept. 25.
