Better than Expected
I got a chance to see a sneak preview, and it was better than expected. First, I have to say that I’ve never read the book. My friend who saw it with me read it, and she said that the movie was pretty faithful to the book.
The movie stars Anne Hathaway, a writer who winds up applying for, and getting the second assistant position to the Editor-in-Chief of THE fashion magazine called “Runway.” Her boss is played by the always fantastic Meryl Streep. While she gets less screen time in the movie, her mean looks and bitchy attitude makes her character stick with you. Also, the movie does give you some soft moments to make her a little more sympathetic than she was portrayed in the novel (or so my friend told me). I do wonder whether or not this movie would’ve worked if Meryl’s character was male instead of female.
I won’t bore you with the other plot details because it was actually fun to not know how it unravels. Without the novel to go by, it was fun to figure out what bad thing was going to happen to her next. I do have to say that the movie has achieved the balance of being cute but not corny. You also get to understand why she just takes it all instead of just quitting to begin with. It’s funny enough to make you laugh out loud, but more importantly, it’s a great film to escape to. Hey, at least for the majority of us, we can come out of the theater and say, “At least my boss isn’t like that.”
All the Wrong Messages
I was horribly offended by this film. Andy’s friends act like she’s selling her soul to work at Runway, as if it’s not just an occupational hazard to submit to cruel bosses here and there. The whole premise of her accepting the job in the first place is that she can then move on to enviable roles in other magazines. What the hell is wrong with that?!!! How is spending a year working your ass off some kind of spiritual sin? It doesn’t make any sense.
And she gets accused of doing to Emily what Priestly does to Tucci’s character, but that’s so clearly not the case. Why should Andy or anyone else sacrifice their promotion for co-workers that never made any effort to be nice to them in the first place? Ideally promotions are awarded meritocratically and why shouldn’t we believe that Andy is just as qualified and deserving of her new responsibilities as Emily? Because she wasn’t there as long? That’s retarded people! The real world doesn’t operate this way. When was the last time you gave up a promotion for some co-worker who was an asshole to you and didn’t necessarily do her job as well? The basic message of this movie is that you shouldn’t be ambitious, because if you are you will be punished by your friends and family–is this women really need to hear more of this bullshit? You’re suppose to presume that had Andy completed her year there she would have set herself permanently on the path to crazed careerism which led to Miranda’s second divorce. Oh, everyone at Runway is so unhappy. It’s not worth it to be at the top of your field in fashion. I mean, it’s absurd.
Oh, and sous chef boyfriend at one point declares how they should stop pretending that he and Andy have anything in common anymore. Oh my God. You obviously had precious little in common in the first place if girlfriend + an unusually stressful year of work is enough to eviscerate all that you used to have in common. In the real world, partners go through periods when they become absorbed by intense spells and relationships survive, because in good relationships partners support the long-term goals of their sig others. How do you think doctors complete their residencies with their relationships in tact? The gratuitous fashion montages were fantastic, but Anne Hathaway is a less than formidable talent that works best when she’s posing all Brunette Barbie style. I actually walked out after Andy threw her cell phone in the fountain. I figured there wouldn’t be anymore eye candy post-Runway and I’d have to sit through some predictable reconciliation scene where she’s apologizing to her boyfriend for having had the misguided notion that the people who loved her might enjoy watching her succeed.
And it’s just a stale, middle-of-the-road mainstream feature in a multitude of other dimensions. Save for Meryl Streep’s white hot performance this movie sucks. View this movie only to witness a blatant example of how society wants to sabotage women’s economic success.
