We've seen Kate Winslet play real people on screen before, including Mary Anning and Iris Murdoch, but for Lee, she's diving into a combination of internal drama and devastating scenes of war. The first trailer for the drama is now online and you can see it below:

Eschewing the cradle-to-grave treatment, the film, directed by award-winning Cinematographer Ellen Kuras, follows a pivotal, explosive (in more ways than one) decade in the life of American war correspondent and photographer Miller, who swapped the life of a runway model for a dangerous existence on the front lines of World War II.

Her talent and unbridled tenacity resulted in some of the 20th century's most indelible images of war, including an iconic photo of Miller herself, posing defiantly in Hitler's private bathtub. And she did all that while battling childhood trauma and paying a huge personal price.

The cast for this one also includes Josh O’Connor, Andrea Riseborough, Andy Samberg, Alexander Skarsgård and Marion Cotillard, and Lee will be in UK cinemas on 13 September, with the US release scheduled for 27 September.
