Meryl Streep won all sorts of attention for her ice-queen portrayal of Miranda Priestly, the impossible boss in The Devil Wears Prada. That character is widely believed to be not-so-secretly based on Anna Wintour, one of the most powerful women of fashion. Curious to know how close to real life the caricature is? Check out The September Issue, a film by R.J. Cutler that follows the planning and production of a landmark issue of Vogue magazine. The focus may start on Wintour, but it is soon stolen by Creative Editor Grace Coddington, a genius of imagination and composition who fights for her ideas. Just wait for the scene where she makes the documentary cameraman part of a high-profile fashion spread. Even Wintour cracks a smile.
