Biography

Inheriting a legacy of letters, Rebecca Miller established herself as a latter-day Renaissance woman, successfully mastering her work as novelist, screenwriter and director of both stage and film productions. The daughter of canonical playwright Arthur Miller, she began her career in fine arts as a painter and sculptor before she gravitated towards the dramatic, landing prominent supporting roles in big-budget films such as "Regarding Henry" (1991) and "Consenting Adults" (1992). In 1995, she put herself on the indie film map by directing "Angela," which earned a nomination for the Sundance Film Festival's Grand Jury prize. She would go on to win that award for her next directorial outing, "Personal Velocity: Three Portraits" (2002), the adaptation of her own book. In 2009, she similarly adapted her novel The Private Lives of Pippa Lee into a star-studded film of the same name. Married to Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis, himself the son of a one-time poet laureate of the U.K., the couple merged their family of literary royalty, all of which would befit her growing reputation as a multifaceted indie auteur with a flair for creating layered characters coping with transitional stages in their lives.
