“A satire with humor as spiky as a pair of Manolo Blahniks … it’s Meryl Streep strutting her best stuff that really ties it all together.” – Stella Papamichael, BBC
In this wildly entertaining dramatic comedy based on the best-selling novel by Lauren Weisberger, Meryl Streep (in a fiercely funny, Oscar-nominated performance) stars as high-powered New York fashion magazine editor Miranda Priestly, a diabolical woman whose new assistant is Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway), a small-town girl in her first job out of college. Trying to navigate a world she’s only glimpsed in print, the fashion-clueless Andy struggles to survive her impossibly demanding new boss and launch herself into the journalism career she’s always dreamed of. With Stanley Tucci, Simon Baker, Emily Blunt and Adrian Grenier. (Dir. by David Frankel, 2006, USA, 109 mins., Rated PG-13)
