This is a charming movie with some tender moments and some witty humour at times. The story affirms and celebrates values of decency and good manners along with the contribution that older people can make to society. Anne Hathaway has real screen presence as the young CEO who has to overcome her prejudices of having an older intern. It’s also good that Robert de Niro is back on screen in a decent role. While the direction loses its focus occasionally, this is an enjoyable, easy-to-watch comedy with some gentle critique of aspects of modern society and good chemistry between its lead actors.
