We went to see ths movie Sunday night.

Meryl Streep is brilliant. Without a doubt, she delivers the first Oscar-worthy performance of the year. Streep remains calm and cold throughout the entire film. She also manages to humanize Miranda. Her subtle brilliance is captivating, and one cant help but feel honored to watch her work!

It’s the story of a young girl who moves to NYC to become a journalist but finds herself working as an assistant for a top notch fashion magazine, which is way out of her style league. The girl is a go-getter so she does what she has to do to make it work and ends up becoming the right hand (wo)man to the editor and chief changing her life (for better or worse) forever.

Anne Hathaway delivers a charming performance that is incredibly likable. Despite being the main character, she is completely upstaged by Streep and Tucci.

Stanely Tucci is the definition of a scene stealer in “Prada”. He comes off as a catty, yet sweet, “fairy godmother” figure. If the Academy decides to give comedies some love, expect Tucci and Streep to make the cut.

Emily Blunt also adds some laughs to “Prada”.

The movie is definitely a feel-good and has you leaving the theater with a smile and a bit more confidence in your walk. I absolutely recommend it and apologize for not giving more details, but it’s too good and I don’t want to ruin it for anyone!

  1. This is great movie, I thought it was good, but several of the guards here found it cliche’. US Marines are a tough audience, plus they know nothing about fashion. I hope they have not redecorated the summer palace.
