The Devil Wears Prada

Beware you don't judge this lady by her designer labels!

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

When Andrea states, “My personal life is hanging by a thread,” a co-worker replies, “That’s what happens when your work life starts going well.” Do you think this is an unavoidable truth, or is it possible to have success at work and at home?

Miranda is a hard-edged editor who won’t accept any excuse for an employee not giving her what she wants. A cast member says, “If Miranda were a man, nobody would notice anything about her.” Do you feel this is accurate? Are we more willing to accept this type of attitude from men than women?

When her friends, boyfriend, and father try to help her recognize how her decisions are affecting her life, Andrea blames the situation on her boss, saying, “I didn’t have a choice.” How do you feel about this statement? Are we ever in a situation with absolutely no choice?

How does Andrea’s attitude toward the fashion industry change during this film? Does she ever completely return to the “old” Andrea? How do you feel about the attitudes expressed regarding body image, weight loss, and looking “fashionable”?
