The Devil Wears Prada (2006)
fantastic performances outweigh plot flaws
As everyone has commented, Meryl Streep's performance is amazing. I also thought Emily Blunt was fantastic. The plot itself is full of holes and the relationship between Andy and her boyfriend is dealt with too marginally to be convincing. The acting and the direction, which is pacey and visually exciting, outweigh the flaws, though.
There are some serious themes in there as well, mainly how far people sacrifice ethics and personal life to corporate success. Also a very interesting question is raised in the film by Andy (Anne Hathaway, looking very Audrey Hepburn-ish in the later sequences)- would people really find Miranda's behaviour so remarkable if she was a man?
