DVD Verdict: When I heard about this movie (back in 2006) I immediately made plans to go see it! Meryl Streep is a very notable actress with a very sharp personality. She was perfect for the role of Miranda Priestly. Anne Hathaway has tons of charisma and clarity. She is also incredibly attractive and beautiful. Her enormous smile is clearly her most distinct trademark. The part that she plays here is very easygoing and sophisticated. The results are mind-blowing in every aspect! I was very impressed with what this movie depicted!
From beginning to end, 'The Devil Wears Prada' will keep you mesmerized. The story of a visionary and sympathetic young lady coming to work for a selfish and unpredictable publication editor has its moments of comedy, drama, and, of course, style. Miranda Priestly is immensely straightforward, direct and serious about her position of editor-in-chief for Runway Magazine. She expects her subordinates to be creative, infallible, dedicated, and independent. Therefore, Miranda is like a powerful monarch in the city of New York.
Andrea Sachs, the other lead character, has tremendous persistence and is very sweet-natured and generous to all of her close companions and relatives. Andrea is forced to obey every fierce command that Miranda bestows upon her. The nature of Miranda really stresses Andrea out and it is not long before her personal life is greatly affected. As a result, she is faced with the confusion of what to do in order to put an end to all of the pressure and mayhem.
