From watching the new documentary 'The September Issue,' it's hard to tell if novelist and former Anna Wintour assistant Lauren Weisberger was unfair to the editor when she created the relentlessly cruel Miranda Priestly.
It's got everything one could hope for in a movie experience: drama, wit, stifled rage, unbridled glee, pouty adolescents wearing far too much makeup, massive egos and a heroine who is absolutely irresistible.
The September Issue really has only as much depth and relevance as fashion itself, but when we travel through the looking glass, it's not usually the simple image on the other side for which we are searching.
Like the sunglasses concealing a big portion of Anna's face, this film conceals more than it reveals. But we still catch glimpses of this iconic personality, often in the reactions of those around her.
