My Thoughts 

 My daughter and I are huge fans of Anne Hathaway, so we were really excited to see this film celebrating it's 10th Anniversary.   Anne Hathaway plays Andy, a young girl trying to make it in the world of journalism. When she lands a job as an assistant to a high fashion magazine, the job description is more than she could have imagined. Her boss, played by the amazing Meryl Streep, has her running all sorts of unreasonable errands and demanding insane hours.   For awhile, Andy does whatever she's asked, even when she starts to see herself changing. All of a sudden she's more worried about clothes and fancy parties than friends. She finds she has to choose between the world of high fashion or the person she really wants to be.

This is such a great movie and perfect for moms and daughters to enjoy together. I really love the premise, especially the message it sends to young girls about weight and beauty not being the most important thing. Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep are both amazing. The movie is fun but still has a great message. It's one I can watch over and over again.
