The Devil Wears Prada – Take Two

From The Movie Snob

The Devil Wears Prada (B). We’ve already reviewed this one, so I’ll be brief. Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises) plays Andy, a college graduate and aspiring journalist who has moved to NYC and who dreams of Making A Difference in the world. Yet, almost despite herself, she lands a job as the second assistant to the Miranda Priestly, the powerful and feared editor of a Vogue-like magazine. Meryl Streep (Death Becomes Her, A Prairie Home Companion) steals the show as the icy yet ferocious Priestly. The story arc is not exactly groundbreaking—naive but talented newcomer in the big city makes good but risks losing her soul in the process—but the doe-eyed Hathaway and the amazing Streep make the predictable material enjoyable. Worth a look.
