I remember seeing DWP in the theatre and afterwards turning to my best friend and saying, “I don’t really like this. What did Andy do wrong? As far as I can tell, she developed a passion and commitment to her job, for which her friends and partner vilified her for. If you want to be successful at anything and you’re just starting out, you kind of have to work a lot and miss stuff like birthdays. I noticed none of them were sad to take her free stuff, but they consistently ridiculed her job and her boss. And I don’t think they would have treated her that way as a man.”
So it’s nice to see that, ten years later, Miranda, and Andy’s commitment to Runway and her career, are seen more positively and that insipid meeting with her ex is the part that makes us collectively cringe.
