"The Intern" With Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway

Over the weekend I decided to rent a movie and relax. I choose the newly released movie "The Intern". As I was watching the movie, I found myself analyzing the story line because of its connections to what we have talked about in class. The basis of the film is Anne Hathaway is a young business founder who is struggling to make her business work and balance her home and personal life. While she is not characterized as a "bitch", something many women in leadership positions are she is faced with other feminist issues. For example, when she takes her daughter to school all the stay at home moms criticize her mothering skills and her ability to cook simply because she is a strong, working women. Her husband also blames her and her work for their failing marriage, even though he left his nice corporate job so Anne's character could pursue her dreams. Even when they look at hiring an outside CEO for the company, all the candidates interviewed are male. It was a very interesting movie, in the end she saves her marriage and retains control of her company. It was a great, light-hearted movie that really made me think.
