The Devil Wears Prada

The Devil Wears Prada
Based on the best-seller by Wiesberger, who denies writing it as a poison-pen letter to her former boss: Vogue magazine's notoriously difficult editor-in-chief Anna Wintourthe.

Story follows aspiring journalist Andrea (Hathaway), a small-town girl in her first job out of college, who tries to navigate the waters of the high-powered fashion magazine world - while surviving her impossibly demanding new boss, Miranda Priestly (the great & hilarious Streep, in a highly praised performance).

"Does it bite the fashion hand that feeds it? You bet. But it also pays due respect to the artful details turning the wheels of an industry that only seems frivolous. There's no doubt Andy learns much from watching Miranda at work, even with all the insults and fool's errands" Rolling Stone.

A fashion-mag procedural that thinks itself a cautionary tale... Streep, so stupendously funny at times that she nearly salvages the whole thing...

An easily digested spoof, in the style of a grown-up Mean Girls. Andy's seduction by a world she initially rejects as superficial gives the film depth. And with its strong ensemble cast, witty script and eye-candy apparel, The Devil Wears Prada is the hottest trend of the season...

Takes place in the world of haute couture. That sums up the movie. Otherwise it would be another boss from hell movie. But what delicious fun Streep and her conspirators have with that world...

It's a shame that Frankel ties pretty bows around the story in the end and it could have had more bite. Still what he does reveal about the fashion biz holds a morbid fascination. Understated moments like the withering once-over Andy is subjected to during her interview with Miranda are classic. Hathaway is an endearing foil, but it's Streep strutting her best stuff that really ties it all together...
