Review of The Devil Wears Prada
At least Gigi was offered a house and a diamond bracelet and dinner at Maxim’s before deciding to give herself body and soul to a man who had no interest in marriage. Why does Andy hold herself so cheap? I would have stayed in Paris.
I’ve not seen it but Elena Maria Vidal’s review grabs me as she makes two excellent points: the romantic myth of La Bohème, certainly in its slacker form, is rubbish, and who needs feminism as it’s understood today? (as opposed to old-fashioned fair-play feminism, which by the way was anti-abortion)... orthodox Catholic women are not doormats (Mother Angelica, anyone?).
