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.
In one of the original drafts, Miranda explains how she started out as an assistant and worked her way up. It is also revealed where she grew up: Pearl River, New York. The scene then continues on to the scene of Miranda confessing her divorce to Andy. This, however, is not true to the book, as Miranda was born Miriam Princhek, to orthodox Jews, in the East End of London, and started off as an assistant to an English designer. She became well-known in London fashion, and started learning French at night to soon become Junior Editor of Chic magazine in Paris. At age 24, she changed her name to Miranda Priestly and replaced her rough, London accent with a sophisticated one, before spending ten years at French Runway, to be later transferred to New York City.
(at around 9 mins) When Andy is in the interview, Miranda is reading a paper. The paper changes after Miranda tells Andy "that's all"
The credits have a sheen on them, like they've been given a coat of polish.
