The Intern (2015)
Her right hand man, Cameron, gets the idea that they should have interns who are senior citizens, and Ben Whittaker (very affably played by Robert De Niro) gets a position. He is a retired business executive who has lost his wife, traveled the world and is now ready to have something purposeful to do. He is completely taken with what Jules has created and while her investors try to get her to dilute her brand by hiring a CEO, he encourages her to stay true to her vision, and you can see that he would be the perfect business adviser to her. She trusts him and he wouldn't screw her. It is an entirely predictable movie that is none the less charming and enjoyable to watch and I recommend it for a family movie night. Sex is hinted but nothing more risque.
