Into Film Clubs
Into Film Clubs provide opportunities to watch, review and make films.
The gossip around fashion film The Devil Wears Prada focused on how closely the story mirrored the world of legendary fashion magazine American Vogue - and particularly how much its famous editor Anna Wintour inspired the character of "editrix" Miranda Priestly. As a result, no real designer wanted to appear in the film for fear of upsetting Ms Wintour - by far the most powerful player in fashion. Anne Hathaway stars as Andy Sachs, an aspiring journalist who lands a job as Ms Priestly's assistant. With parallels to the TV show Ugly Betty, Andy is ridiculed by her colleagues before slowly winning their respect - and free clothes!
PLEASE BE AWARE: After ordering The Devil Wears Prada you may receive a disc marked as being a 12 certificate however, this relates to the extra features on the DVD and not the film itself, which is certified with the BBFC as a PG. Into Film has consulted the BBFC, and their guidance is that as long as a club leader screens only the film (and not the additional features or audio commentaries etc), The Devil Wears Prada can be treated as a PG certificate in a school setting.
Fascinating documentary about US Vogue magazine which exposes both the artistry and the frivolity of high-end fashion.
