I like this Confessions of a Shopaholic film. It was enjoyable and genuine. Rebecca Bloomwood live with her best friend work as a correspondent for a gardening magazine. Rebecca Bloomwood is a lovely redheaded young woman who likes to go shopping. When she walks past a retailer she heard that the mannequins are talking to her and try to encourage her that shopping trendy clothing come make her feel eye-catching and alive.
After losing her job as a writer, she makes a decision to sign up for her dream job: trendy clothing correspondent for Alette magazine. When she walks past a fashion store she found an amazing green scarf. Her credit card is declined, so Rebecca goes to a hot dog stand and offers to buy all the hot dogs with a check, if the seller gives her back change in cash, saying the scarf is to be a gift for her sick aunt. The hot dog vendor refuses but a man offers her $20. When Rebecca Bloomwood get to the Alette magazine she found that the job gets filled before she can arrive, but a sister magazine from the same magazine group, Successful Saving, is hiring. The man at the front desk assures her that the magazine group is a family, and once you’re in, you’re in.
Rebecca interviews with Luke Brandon (Hugh Dancy), the editor of Successful Savings and the man who just gave her the $20. She hides her scarf outside his office, but Luke’s assistant comes into the office and gives it back to her. Rebecca recognizes the game is up and leaves.
That night, drunk, she and Suze(her best friend) write letters to Alette and Successful Saving, but she mails each to the completely wrong magazine. Luke likes the letter she meant to send to Alette and hires her.
Becky’s writing for the monetary magazine is a surprise hit. She writes about financial restraint in such a way that the common layperson can relate, comparing it to shoes. It seems like everything’s going swell with her new job and a surprise relationship with Luke. Derek Smeath(Rebecca’s debt collector, All told, she owes Mr. Smeath some $16, 000. )#)can’t get a leg in since she’s certain her colleagues that he’s an ex-boyfriend harassment her. But like any liar knows, Becky can’t stick the truth from her friends and family for long. At the moment when Mr. smeath put his hands we both know that Rebecca will lose both her job and relationship and even her best friend who found out that Rebecca sold her bridesmaid dress.
It’s a comic film, anyone who watches the film will understand that Becky goes through her own hard time, and she finds a method to get through it. She comes up with her own business plan to pay off her debt. This is what we all need to do during the difficult times. Find a way to get through.
Also Rebecca realized that shopping is not the whole life so she sold her most clothes including the green scarf and paid her debts. Luke bought the green scarf and give it back to her, they were back to relationship again. Since that time, Rebecca learn to dance, move her attention to her real life. We don’t hate Rebecca, because she is flawed. She doesn’t have it all together, but her style and spirit charm everyone around her. Sometimes we may get lost at the journey of our whole life, but remember that it is our choices that show what we truly are. So when you going through your hard time, make your right choices and find a way to get through.
