Andrea dreams to become a journalist and faces the opportunity as a temporary professional challenge. The first assistant Emily advises Andrea about the behavior and preferences of their cruel boss, and the stylist Nigel helps Andrea to dress more adequately for the environment.

In the end, Andrea learns that life is made of choices.Written by

I thought the movie was just too cute.. If you've read the book, you won't be disappointed!
It's the story of a young girl who moves to NYC to become a journalist but finds herself working as an assistant for a top notch fashion magazine, which is way out of her style league. The girl is a go-getter so she does what she has to do to make it work and ends up becoming the right hand (wo)man to the editor and chief changing her life (for better or worse) forever.
The movie is definitely a feel-good and has you leaving the theater with a smile and a bit more confidence in your walk. I absolutely recommend it and apologize for not giving more details, but it's too good and I don't want to ruin it for anyone!
Also, for you guys... a lot of males were at the special showing and I heard a few say they surprisingly liked it (including one of my "macho" guy friends) so if you're looking for a nice date or a surprise for your loved one, it's a good pick!
