Ann Hathaway

Ann Hathaway
The two movies I saw for Ann Hathaway were the Devil wears Prada (2006) and Alice in Wonderland (2010) these were to good films that I could watch over and over.
Devil Wears Prada Hathaway Plays Andrea  Sach the co Assistant to the Hard nose snobby Runway Magazine Editor Miranda Priestly. Andrea strive to live up to the expectations of her boss demands while at the same time trying to balances her life with friends and family.
Alice in Wonderland Hathaway plays Mariana of Marmoreal  The White Queen, the sister of the Evil Red Queen who awaits the Champion(Alice) who will slay the Jabberwocky, Hathaway calls her character Cute but psycho, and a punk rock vegan pacifist
The through line for the Devil wears Prada I feel Hathaway was committed too. Trying to find a sense of balance between career and family but mostly career mostly gets the hold of you but in the end you choose your family and friends and also yourself.
In Alice of wonderland playing the graceful yet spooky Mariana was the good queen dressed in all white in her own unique way hints to Alice that she is the champion, the one who must defeat the Jabberwocky so that Mariana can take her place as the True Queen.  Story of Good over Evil.
Both had a sense of truth, Alice in Wonderland Directed by Tim Burton most of the scene were animated and digital enhance so to see Hathaway give life to this character was very interesting.
I think that Mariana was the character that she had to prepare for the most. She had to develop a queen like/ballerina disposition and be able to blend in with the animation of varies characters and use more imaginary circumstances was the challenge that Hathaway had do deal with.
At the same time though for Hathaway to carry her own playing next to a heavy weight like three time Oscar winner Meryl Streep In The Devil Wears Prada was no easy task as well.
