In the book, Andy is specifically mentioned numerous times as being blonde. I think that the movie explored the sometimes cutthroat world of the fashion industry where everyone is image conscious and trying to get a ahead. April 17, at 4: I have never read the book either, but I thought the movie was very vivid in both the world and the characters it creates.
April 17, at 2: There are differences also in the plot, in the begging of the novel Miranda is on vacation when Andrea starts to work for Runway and in the end Andrea and Alex are no long lovers.
One of the big problems of the modern women is that in theory they won more rights, but in really, they have to prove many times they are as competent as the men. There are some changes that it can be highlighted. The important thing to understand is that the movie and the book focus on different things.
Emily for example, in the The devil wears prada movie book differences helps Andrea sometimes while in the film she does not do it. In order to manage her power Miranda becomes a sarcastic, intolerant, arrogant and totally inflexible person.
But as it real life, despite she is well prepared to the job, this would not be as easy as she thought. In the book, Miranda is British and Emily is an American.
How one picks up the slack over the other The others differences are: The scene in question was never returned to in the confines of the book, but it gave us an idea of what it was like to work for Miranda Priestly.
She has to dedicate herself to the job 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and consequently the relationship with her family, boyfriend and best friend is affected. The first-person narrative felt, lack of a better word, odd.
The movie, as well as the novel, is a good material for reflection and discussion about the modern women role in a modern society.
Also Andrea has a different attitude, especially with Miranda. My review of "Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters" is proof of this. The book is about a young woman named Andy Sachs, who recently graduated Brown University and moved to New York City in hopes of landing a job in the publishing industry.
I liked both the book and the movie. Usually, I nitpick when my favorite books are massacred by movies. In Median and Culture, Kelnner says that: You actually see the chinks in her armor. It makes her character stronger to quit of her own accord, and takes the power away from Miranda.
Other important theme discussed in this film is the relation between women and job market. Second, Miranda calls Andrea all time, asking her impossible things, as to get the new Harry Potter novel, which was not in the bookstores yet or to buy a dresser which she had seen in an antiquarian without the possibility to ask her: In the book, Andy finally has enough of Miranda controlling her life and curses Miranda out to her face.
In the film, Andrea faces different stages before to be able to decide what is more important for her.
The movie was also a huge success with critics and moviegoers. She was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress. KELNNER, So, by analyzing film productions, it is possible to discuss many aspects of the different societies from different epochs and it can be an important resource of teaching not only as a differential for the classes, but also as a way of introduce the students to cultural aspects represented by them.
I love Meryl Streep. Andy explained how everyone loves and supports Miranda, but occasionally, her co-workers slip up. So, the use of media in the classes is mandatory in order to get the attention and interest of these students.
So, these are relevant themes for discussion and reflection that cannot be absent of classes.In order to stimulate the use of this kind of media as a pedagogic tool, I chose “The Devil Wears Prada”, a comedy-drama film that was inspired in the novel with same title of Lauren Weisberger launched into analyze.
