I did think the subplot with Liam was distracting. First of all, it was too obvious Duff's character wouldn't end up with him - he was TOO perfect. More importantly, it took time and attention away from the idea of dating in the business world. This theme could have been played up a lot more than what is actually captured in the movie. In fact, there are really 2 guys in the office who are really even "contenders." Instead, I could easily have imagined the "Liam" character changed into one of Duff's coworkers, but one who it turns out was engaged in shady stock deals or something. I reduced my rating by a star because there was just so much more comedic potential in mixing the women's fashion and men's business worlds.
Actress Hilary Duff is all grown up and she returns in a "Sex and the City-esque" style of storyline in "Beauty & the Briefcase", an ABC Family television film that is an adaptation of the novel "Diary of a Working Girl" by Daniella Brodsky. The film featured a collaboration with ABC Family and Cosmopolitan magazine and aired on April 18, 2010 and attracted 2.4 million viewers. The TV film was nominated for "Favorite Family TV Movie" for the People's Choice Awards 2011.
The film is directed by Gil Junger (popular TV director and director for "10 Things I Hate About You" movie and TV series, "Greek", "Hope & Faith", "According to Jim") and a screenplay adaptation by Michael Horowitz ("Burn Notice").
"Beauty & the Briefcase" is presented in 1080p High Definition (Widescreen 1:78:1). The film was shot using an F23 Sony camera in progressive HD and for a TV movie, the film looks very good, especially with shots of Lane walking through New York. If anything, the film manages to show the vibrancy of New York as well as the fashion elements from the film but it works for a TV film, I didn't notice any high-details when it came to objects, clothing or skin pigmentation as you would see from a feature film but nevertheless, "Beauty & the Briefcase" does showcase colors which are vibrant and also didn't notice the artifacts and coloration problems that I tend to see with TV episodes or some TV films.
"Beauty & the Briefcase" definitely looks stylish and colorful and fans of the TV film will definitely enjoy this Blu-ray release.Read more ›
