20th Century Fox
If you have ever worked in the entertainment industry, you know there are a lot of crazies out there running the show. I must say that I was not among the twentysomethings who raced through the pages of the novel while sitting poolside in the Hamptons. The story of a young New York transplant looking to make it in the big city is not all that new. What makes this movie so much fun are the wonderful characters that fill the story, marvelously inhabited by a fine slew of actors including Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Stanley Tucci. They each ride that delicate line between caricature and reality, and they all come out on top. Director, David Frankel has paced it all perfectly, so that we in the audience are always entertained and amused by every shade of crazy the fashion world has to offer. This is like the lemonade of summer movies – tart and refreshing.
