    Each individual has a different idea of what being ethical means. For Miranda Priestly, ethics is not a big concern for her. Throughout the movie, Miranda has many opportunities to change her ways, yet she continues to intimidate, degrade, and humiliate everyone around her (Frankel and Finerman, 2006).

However, the dragon lady showed her soft part at the end of the movie: Miranda…
