The Intern the intern script pdf a 2015 American comedy film directed, written and produced by Nancy Meyers. The film was released on September 25, 2015 by Warner Bros.
Seventy-year-old widower Ben Whittaker, a retired executive from DEX One, applies to a senior citizen intern program after retirement has become too boring for him. The company in Brooklyn he applies to is About the Fit, a fast-growing e-commerce fashion startup, whose founder and CEO Jules Ostin had previously agreed to a comunity outreach program where seniors would intern at the firm.
Ben impresses everyone and is one of four hired. Ben is assigned to work with Jules, who is somewhat skeptical at first. Initially frozen out by her, Ben slowly wins over co-workers with his congeniality and gets into Jules’s good graces. Ben heads to work one day extra early to organize a desk that Jules had complained about the messiness of previously.
After work, Ben notices Jules’s chauffeur drinking, convinces the driver to leave and drives Jules home himself, a role he retains in days to come. Ben eventually reveals that he once worked in the very same building where About The Fit is now based. He develops a romantic relationship with the in-house massage therapist, Fiona, and becomes something of a father figure to the younger workers, such as offering one intern advice for what to wear when making a delivery to Beyoncé and Jay-Z and providing another with a place to stay at his house after the other man is evicted by his parents.
Ben is very committed to Jules, and even breaks into the house of Jules’s mother to delete an embarassingly scathing email that Jules inadvertently sent her, narrowly avoiding getting arrested in the process. Ben also gets to know Jules’ family. About The Fit started to take off. However, their marriage is slowly breaking apart as the couple grows more distant.
Meanwhile, Jules is under pressure to give up her post of CEO to someone outside of the company as her investors feel that she is unable to cope with the workload, having grown About The Fit from a startup founded in her kitchen to a 220-employee juggernaut in only eighteen months. Believing it will give her more time at home with her family, Jules is willing to consider the offer. While driving Paige home from a party, Ben discovers that Matt is having an affair with another parent at Paige’s school.
While on a business trip in San Francisco to interview a potential CEO candidate, Jules reveals that she knows about Matt’s cheating as well, but did not confront Matt about it because she was not ready to deal with it. In an effort to buy herself the time to save her marriage, Jules decides to hire a prospective CEO. When Jules goes to Ben’s home the next day, Ben greatly encourages Jules to think about how much this will change her authority and how her creativity may be tampered with and also reminds her of her passion for her company. Matt unexpectedly drops in at the office and urges her to reconsider, saying that he is sorry, ashamed, and wants to support her in her dreams.
