When widowed, retiree Ben Whittaker (De Niro) loses his lust for life, he responds to a post-it wanted ad for a 'Senior Intern' at an e-commerce start-up company, led by fashion designer Jules Ostin (Hathaway), and discovers his place in the world again by bringing back some old-school ethics to a modern workplace.

So, how does it end?

Jules texts her number two guy at work to tell him to move her intern Ben as he is 'too observant', but regrets it the next day when she has a new driver who turns out to be the doddery old lady.

She finds Ben in a coffee shop and asks for forgiveness. Ben is back onboard and given more responsibility, including being sat next to her PA.

Jules starts to warm to her intern, but Ben has a hard decision to make when he takes Jules' daughter home early from a party and catches Jules' husband kissing another woman.

Jules asks Ben to go with her to the West Coast as she has to interview another potential CEO. The interview goes well, but that night Jules opens her heart to Ben, telling him that she knows about her husband's affair. Ben reminds her that she built the company on her own, and shouldn't accept anything bad that happens to her just because she is hard working. He also says that she shouldn't hire a CEO just to try to save her marriage.

They return to New York. Jules' husband turns up at the office and apologises, and doesn't want her to take on the CEO. So she agrees, and that's it - things are back where they started, and Ben is still an intern. Move along, nothing to see here. Poor ending, but still a good movie.
