Miller lands Irish film festival honour

Miller, who is also the daughter of renowned American playwright Arthur Miller, will be presented with the Maureen O’Hara award recognising women in film.

The award, named after one of Ireland’s best known and best loved acting greats, was presented for the first time last year (08) to Irish actress Brenda Fricker.

Miller’s credits include 2005 drama The Ballad of Jack and Rose, starring her husband Day-Lewis and Camilla Belle, and this year’s (09) The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, starring Robin Wright Penn.

The nine-day event is scheduled to kick off on 31 October (09).
