The September Issue

If you’re ever in Manhattan and want to catch a really interesting film, then you should check out “The September Issue,” by director R.J. Cutler. This movie, which was acclaimed highly at the Sundance Film Festival, is a documentary which goes inside one of the most important fashion magazines, Vogue. The making of the September 2007 issue and Anna Wintour, are the centerpieces of this film. If you have ever seen the movie “The Devil Wears Prada,” then you can imagine the hectic and semi-ridiculous things that can happen at a high fashion publication.

This movie is not like the one where Anne Hathaway is practically a slave to an Anna Wintour inspired character, but shows the dedication and power of the editor’s work and renown fashion sense. This movie takes you behind the scenes of runway shows, photo shoots and Fashion Week. Not only is this movie enjoyable but it is a special account of a world seldom people will ever experience up-close.
