My wife read the book, "The Devil Wears Prada" and she enjoyed it. Today we went to see the movie.
I was reluctant at first. I knew the movie was about fashion, main character is a she, so I thought it's a chick flick. It's not like that, although it does show a lot of chicks and a lot of fashion. I did like the movie and the points it was trying to make.
The movie is about Andrea, an educated smart girl, who is not into fashion, not that pretty, or at least thinks and acts as if she is not. She has no other opportunity but to work as an assistant to the editor of Runway magazine, Miranda. Miranda is so bossy, so over-the-top and a goddess of fashion. I will not spoil any more of the movie, but it is very good.
For me, the main point in the movie is that it doesn't matter if you have something that a million other persons dream to have, what matters is do you have what you want? And even if you think you don't have a choice but to do what you have to do, you always do have a choice, even if it is simply walking away.
