Kate Winslet is starring in and producing a new Lee Miller biopic. Marion Cotillard, Jude Law and Josh O’Connor have also joined the cast. The movie is set to film next summer in Europe.
After Mare of Easttown and her upcoming inevitable sweep, I feel like Winslet is getting a career renaissance and it won’t be long before she wins another Oscar.
Your thoughts about this ?October 21, 2021 at 1:21 pm #1204530770
That person who compared Winslet to her competitors at the Emmy just because she didn’t have new projects can shut their goddamned mouth right now. Queen comes for all of her things! She really manifests what is in that Ricky Gervais’ skit, doesn’t she?

Riseborough plays Audrey Withers, the powerful editor of British Vogue who was a close friend of Miller but was part of the decision making to not publish her shocking Dachau photos. Cotillard will play Solange D’Ayen, the fashion director of French Vogue who was also a close ally of Miller’s going back to her fashion days. A respected voice in high fashion, D’Ayen was taken by the Nazis in 1942 and sent to prison in Fresnes, with Miller and other friends unaware of what happened to her. Miller finally found her after the war, and she was understandably a shadow of herself. Law is playing Roland Penrose, the artist and poet who became the love of Miller’s life. O’Connor — who won the Emmy for playing Prince Charles in The Crown — is playing Miller’s son, Anthony Penrose. It was his books and archives Liz Hannah (The Post, Mindhunter) used to write the script.The composer is Alexandre Desplat, costume designer Michael O’Connor, cinematographer Pavel Edelman and makeup and hair design head Ivana Primorac. All are Oscar winners or nominees.
Looks like Cotillard has the baitiest supporting part (unsurprisingly).October 22, 2021 at 3:02 am #1204531754
When Marion Cottilard presented the Oscar she clearly really admired Kate Winslet. So I’m excited to see them on screen together. This sounds like a great project.October 22, 2021 at 3:06 am #1204531758

Yes.I just read the Wikipedia page on Lee Miller and realised that if this had been a HBO Miniseries,the actress playing it would be guaranteed an Emmy. It’s just made of Awards Bait. (If you read the Wikipedia page, you’ll know what I mean).October 22, 2021 at 9:30 am #1204532287
I read about Lee Miller and her biopic cries out awards. Holocaust, Vogue, Haunting Memories of her past, Friend gone missing and returning tormented, Husband cheating, bathing in Hitler’s tub, taking pictures of concentration camps, visiting Hitler’s house, suffering from depression after the war due to memories of visiting the camps, hiding photos of the camps in an attic so that she forgets them—- Hoping the screenwriter doesn’t make the plot too cluttered.October 31, 2021 at 10:33 pm #1204550551
Vanity Fair and Vogue are going to push and promote this movie like anything cause Lee Miller was the correspondent of both magazines.November 1, 2021 at 7:39 pm #1204552370
An Oscar movie and a upcoming blockbuster (Avatar 2)… Kate is back in the league!November 1, 2021 at 8:07 pm #1204552391
I’m all types of here for this!November 1, 2021 at 8:21 pm #1204552401
The movie is waiting for a buyer at the AFM. Hope it gets a suitable buyer and distributor.November 1, 2021 at 9:16 pm #1204552459
They should have cast Jared Leto as Lee Miller. True chameleon.
A very annoying young man, who loves cinema. 🙂

I’m extremely interested in seeing this movie, but as for Oscar chances, I’m cautiously optimistic but not overly confident. Thus reminds me a little of another recent film. In 2018 Rosalind Pike starred as female war correspondent Marie Colvin in A Private War, a movie that co-starred Stanley Tucci and Jamie Dornan. It was fairly well received— with a 75 MC score- but pre-pandemic it took in only $3.8 million, and while Pike received a Golden Globe nomination, the film didn’t receive any Oscar noms. I’m the target audience for this movie, and I’ll see it the week it is released, but I suspect that this period piece, which I expect to be compelling and extremely well acted, won’t generate a particularly large or young audience. It sounds to me like something that would have had a much better chance at Oscar nominations and awards had it been released 20 or 30 years ago. Nonetheless, I can’t wait to see it.Not now
