The Devil Wears Prada, What Left After Laughter

Filed under: Fun — admin @ 12:52 am

On 3/9, Friday evening, the first day of spring break for my daughter, I watched a movie with her, The Devil Wears Prada, as I had promised.

According to Wikipedia, the story is about “a young woman who, freshly graduated from college, is hired as a personal assistant to a powerful fashion magazine editor, a job that becomes hellish as she struggles to keep up with her boss’s capricious and demeaning requests.”

Of course, the movie is much more than this. The young woman, Andrea Sachs, works for that powerful and extremely fastidious boss, Miranda, because ” if she manages to work for Miranda for a year, she can have her select pick of jobs within the magazine industry.” But just at the point when she finally wins the hard-to-earned approval from her boss, she walks away from her boss.

After watching it, we couldn’t help making comments on it. “I would not put up with things like this in order to succeed,” I said. But sometimes, “it is okay to put up with whatever comes your way or swallow one’s pride in order to succeed. But it is never okay to push away other people or step over friends on your way to success.” This is the reason why Andrea leaves her boss. This is also the reason why I don’t want my children to become successful this way.
