The Devil Wears Prada

This movie is a treasure! It was well received when it came out and stands up to the test of time. Anne Hathaway is the girl who doesn't understand fashion and they did a great job in bringing her from clueless to clued in. This type of show usually takes the girl and dresses her as an ugly duckling, a caricature rather than a person, so the change will be more dramatic. But they didn't do this here and so the movie and the changes are all that more convincing and dramatic.

Meryl Strepp is so good as the driven woman of business who runs the fashion magazine with the passion that it requires to be the best in your field. Stanley Tucci is good as the designer who takes pity on Anne occasionally and gives her harsh criticism and advice as needed.

This is a great comedy because it shows us a fresh glimpse of an industry as we follow a girl who follows the strength of her convictions.
