Four movies I personally recommend you to watch

The Intern (2015)

By its movie title, you probably have an idea of its content. Well, to tell you honestly I’ve searched many movie titles looking for intern content. Why? Well, I am preparing myself for my online internship program. Since the pandemic hinders face-to-face classes. Internships will be done for online set up just like classes. Upon watching the movie, I was so amazed because the intern that I assume would be like of my age. However, it hooked me up when Robert De Niro’s (Ben Witthaker) character came up as a senior intern at an online fashion site. His character as a seventy-year-old widow who is in his retirement age discovered something new.

Moreover, Anne Hathaway’s character (Jules Ostin) portrays as the workaholic CEO. She’s somewhat skeptical of Ben as a senior intern but, because of Ben’s courage and initiative. They formed a bond of friendship. This American comedy-drama film is perfect from its plot, actors, and cinematography. What do I love about this movie? It’s not your typical movie wherein the girl just takes care of the child and the husband works away from home. It’s actually the opposite.

Frankly, I was so touched by the character of Jules Ostin. I also dreamed of building my own fashion company and be a working woman that is free from anyone. It also reflects the conflicts and struggles of powerful and modern women. Try to watch it!

Miss Sloane (2016)

 If you enjoy political thriller films, count this movie on your list!. Starring Jessica Chastain as Miss Sloane itself. It revolves around the chaotic world of politics. At first, I’m so confused about whether each character betrayed her or supports her. Elizabeth Sloane is a lobbyist in D.C who attempts to fight the passage of gun control legislation. It’s quite a dramatic film reflecting the connection between big businesses and politics. However, her character was bruised when her opponents destroyed her with her personal life. But, here’s the catch! Miss Sloane’s character impresses me with how calm and wise she responds to the opponent’s move. It’s like playing a game of chess, a mind game to be exact. Never have I explored such a movie like this. 

And if you’re wondering what kind of character she portrays. Let me share with you her iconic lines in the movie.

 “Lobbying is about foresight. About anticipating your opponent’s moves and devising countermeasures. The winner plots one step ahead of the opposition and plays her trump card just after they play theirs. ” 

“It’s about making sure you surprise them, and they don’t surprise you.”
