Nancy Meyers United States, 2015

Steve Pulaski's rating of the film The Intern

One of the year's finest dramas. Not only does it intelligently examine the generation gap between millennial and baby boomers, but it thoughtfully explores contemporary sociological ideas about what it means to be a man or a woman in society (I winced at the bar scene in the trailer until I saw how nicely it plays in the film). Then there's the structure, which starts broad but then zeroes in on the two great leads.
