Goodviews: The Devil Wears Prada

The Devil Wears Prada might come off as a fashion movie, but it’s deeper than that. A lot deeper.

On one hand you’ve got Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway). Young, eager to please, looking for a new job, and her idea of fashion is throwing on a pair of jeans and a good shirt. On the other hand you have Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) who heads up a very high-fashion magazine.

Somehow Andy gets herself hired at Runway as second assistant to Miranda. She’s basically doing grunt work and getting looked down upon not only by Miranda, but by everyone at the company, save one. Nigel (Stanley Tucci) works in the fashion department helping put together outfits for the models. He’s the only person shown within Runway who is willing to give Andy a real chance and he helps her by getting her a makeover so others will at least think she knows a fair amount of fashion (or that she’s learned it). Everyone is impressed with the change, except Andy’s boyfriend who isn’t sure he likes the person Andy is becoming.

Change can be a good thing, but how far will Andy go to impress Miranda? Will she lose her friends and boyfriend along the way?

Want to know more? The movie is based off of a book by the same title and even has a sequel.

Heather: This movie came out back in 2006 and I watched it with a group of friends. Sometimes I just want to put it on for the background music and to hear the banter between Andy and Nigel.
