The hilarious comedy The Internship stars Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn as salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. But gaining entrance to this utopia is only half the battle. Now they must compete with a group of the nation’s most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of reinvention.

Max Rose, an aging jazz pianist, loses his wife of sixty-five years. Max makes a startling discovery just days before her death, causing him to believe that his entire marriage was a lie. He embarks on an exploration of his own past that brings him face to face with a menagerie of characters from a bygone era.

Extra! Writer and director Daniel Noah introduced the film and there was a post-screening audience Q&A session with the film’s star, legendary actor Jerry Lewis.
