Both actors are crafting two of the most intricate characters in the film and it does not need evidence that they have done it well. But this film is more about the 32-year-old “Installer” actress who is portraying Jules in this sentimental Nancy Meyers comedy-drama. On the other hand, De Niro is somehow restricted in his sphere as we see him barely doing anything. De Niro, the two-time Oscar winner is essaying the character of Ben, a widower who is in his 70’s, yet is full of life.
The plot spins around the story when Ben, a senior citizen, interns at a web-based clothing company as the professional assistant to the company’s founder, Jules. This seems to be the most interesting part of the plot that a retired person has opted the internship under an edgy boss of 30-years. It is something that relives the movie from being a cliché. Predictably Ben goes on to spread his charm in the office and after some hustle-bustle even on Jules. Jules somehow ends up being a character that justifies the Hollywood stereotype. The onus is on the script though the “The Devil Wears Prada” actress tries her best to cut off the monotony.
Now, the plot hails Jules’ affable husband Matt, played by Anders Holm, who sacrificed his marketing career to be a stay-at-home dad and later his frustration or may be his undeniable habit leads him to an affair that was Jules aware of.
The story is certainly emotionally charged but lacks the brisk that we expected. The film hits the big screen on Friday.
