The Devil Wears Prada Reviews
Streep makes it work. Streep makes it fun. Best known for her dramatic brilliance, Streep has done strong comedic turns in the past, and this performance is a reminder of that, and then some.
At once coolly indifferent and fanatically detail-obsessed, coiffed off-white hair emphasizing a hawk's hooded gaze, Streep is the scariest, most nuanced, funniest movie villainess since Tilda Swinton's nazified White Witch.
Slight but entertaining, The Devil Wears Prada is an ugly duckling-Cinderella tale set in the fashion industry, in which the wicked stepmother is far more interesting than the princess-to-be.
