One can assume that this movie is intended for a female audience because it is related to the world of style and fashion, but this is not exactly true. The Devil Wears Prada is a beautiful and complex story of finding a job, changing your principles, making conclusions about upcoming changes, and testing one’s spiritual strength.
At her college, Andrea (Anne Hathaway) was an honors pupil and editor-in-chief of a student newspaper, so the leading fashion magazine of New York, Runway, got interested in her resume. There’s one problem, though. The editor-in-chief of the magazine, Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), turns out to be a real monster and comes up with the most sophisticated tortures for the girl. She makes Andrea give up her donuts, wear heels, throw out her favorite blue sweater, and work until almost two in the morning.
Soon after getting the job, Andrea will have to find out all the horrors of the glossy world and, most importantly, the true face of her divine boss.
Life in a circle of celebrities can be tempting and dizzy. But the Devil Wears Prada is not a perverse demonstration of this kind of life, it is the perception of a better life, but at what cost? The moral of the film is based on the constant struggle for the best job. Advance at work, but lose what you had before.
For its time, the film was shot in standard narrative details. A beautiful picture, a good palette of colors, an easy storytelling with increasing tension, an understandable conflict, and a decisive epilogue. The Devil Wears Prada is definitely an excellent movie to watch.
