PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama
A smart but sensible new graduate lands a job as an assistant to Miranda Priestly, the demanding editor-in-chief of a high fashion magazine.
Emily Blunt was discovered in a parking lot. She had been auditioning for Eragon (2006), also a production by 20th Century Fox, but was turned down after multiple callbacks, when a producer from "Devil" decided to put her on an audition tape. More than 100 actresses was considered for the part and Blunt had returned to England to recover when the Fox executives offered her another audition, this time they asked her to dress more like her character. In her tape she wore jeans and flip flops.
As Andy is distributing Miranda's unwanted items, Miranda calls; once Andy gets the phone from the others, she is talking on the Sidekick upside down. You can clearly see the multi-directional pad which is the earpiece.
The credits have a sheen on them, like they've been given a coat of polish.
