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.
