A fresh college graduated girl comes to New York. She dreams of becoming a journalist but ends up getting a job as the assistant to one of the biggest fashion magazine editors, the famous and ruthless Miranda Priestly. Nevertheless, a year’s experience with "the Devil" would guarantee her dream job at any newspapers. Could she survive this crazy and frantic job?
The movie is adapted from a bestseller book with the same title written by Lauren Weisberger. The theme of the story about a boss and a subordinate with the struggle to cope up with extraordinary order touches the heart of the working class because it helps lifting up the spirit and will-power in the workplace.
Meryl Streep has yet again delivered her finest performance as Miranda "the Devil" Priestly. Anne Hathaway’s portrayal of a naive girl who ended up working for Miranda adds up a spice to the movie. The ensemble of the cast is one of the best feature of this film. The dialogue is sharp and vivid while the storyline is somewhat okay, however, the ending is too good to be true. I guess it suffers from the "Hollywood" effect which keeps the story far from reality and drifts it to the realm of "imaginary" world.
4 stars out of 5 – just watching the acting of Meryl Streep and the dresses of Anne Hathaway is enough.
