Who the devil is Prada?

Dir. David Frankel

Starring Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, Stanley Tucci

The Devil Wears Prada is about Andrea (Hathaway), who lands a job as assistant for an infamous editor (Streep) at a fashion magazine. She considers it a stepping stone for something bigger, better, and more “her”, since she thinks it’s all mostly superficial nonsense. And don’t we all, eh?

We follow the young crumpet as she slowly begins to learn the inner workings of the business. She finds the people a lot less superficial than they first appear (duh), and begins to actually enjoy, and be good at her work. She also sees the merit that any work within the publishing business (if only in fashion) can have for her future work as a journalist.

Major spoilers ahead

This is where the movie drops the ball. As Andrea begins to find herself, and her feet, all her friends turn on her. Suddenly we see how superficial and one-dimensional they actually are. They pretty much sever Andrea’s link to the real world, leaving her to be eaten up by the fashionistas. She manages though, really well actually, but finally decides to come crawling back to her “friends” and beg forgiveness.

I mean what the hell!?

Who is this movie catering to? You can’t be on both sides of the fence without some majorly sore balls! I just don’t know.. Maybe they’re not imagining anyone actually following the storyline, since they’ll be too busy looking at the pretty clothes? That’s my major complaint anyway, the rest of it works for me. I mean it’s not brilliant in any way, and the music may be fantastically derivative, but it is just a movie. I’m pretty sure it gets it’s fans a good laugh and some topics of conversation.
