Robert De Niro plays a “senior”—as in “seniors in life”—intern at Anne Hathaway’s company in the trailer for Nancy Meyers’ latest, The Intern. The two, of course, develop an age-defying friendship wherein they act as each other’s support system.
There is some light old man in a young man’s world humor here—De Niro believes in tucked in shirts and joins Facebook—but the trailer definitely isn’t making fun of De Niro’s character. “Look and learn, boys, because this is what cool is,” Hathaway says, referring to De Niro.
Meyers—the master of the aging gracefully genre, with titles under her belt like Something’s Gotta Give and It’s Complicated—told BuzzFeed upon the trailer’s debut: “It is an homage to men like my dad.”
Andrew Rannells, Adam DeVine, and Nat Wolff also star.
