Summary and Review of the Movie The Devil Wears Prada.
In New York, the simple and naive Andrea Sachs who just graduated from journalism begins looking for a job. The dreams of Andrea becoming a journalist, becomes a professional challenge when she landed on a job as second assistant to the sophisticated Miranda Priestly. She is the ruthless and merciless executive of the Runway fashion magazine. Eventhough a lot of girls would die to get into her shoes and be Miranda's assistant, Andrea finds it hard to balance her friends, career and her dreams.
It's my second time to watch this movie, but i wasn't able to write a review when I watched this years back. This is one of the movies I would recommend to watch with girlfriends. :) If you are into fashion or writing you would enjoy this movie. Meryl Streep really did her part well as a nasty boss. Great. Great.
Although there's really nothing new on the plot... but.. well this sure entertained me. :)
Quotes I find Funny:
Miranda Priestly: By all means move at a glacial pace. You know how that thrills me.
Richard Sachs: What does she want you to do, call the National Guard and have her airlifted out of there?
Andy Sachs: Of course not. Could I do that?
Andy Sachs: That's not what I... no, that was different. I didn't have a choice.
Miranda Priestly: No, no, you chose. You chose to get ahead. You want this life. Those choices are necessary.
Andy Sachs: But what if this isn't what I want? I mean what if I don't wanna live the way you live?
Miranda Priestly: Oh, don't be ridiculous. Andrea. Everybody wants this. Everybody wants to be us.
Andy Sachs: She's not happy unless everyone around her is panicked, nauseous or suicidal.
