The Devil wears Prada

The Devil wears Prada

I have been quite busy these days with little time to write on this blog, still yesterday we managed to watch a movie: I had an old DVD of The Devil wears Prada. While the plot is pretty straightforward, it is a fun comedy to watch, and Meryl Streep is really giving life to the main character. What annoyed me is taking Anne Hathaway as a plain journalist, taking an über-cute actress who is very thin, and then pretend that her metamorphosis is an unexpected surprise is ridiculous. The other annoyance is her explanation at the end of the movie that it was all about shoes, it was not. She was driven by her need to get things done, and her relationship with her boss, not the shoes. She is supposed to be smart, how can she not realise what she is doing? Reducing the whole experience to shoes is very self-demeaning…
