Kate Winslet plays war photographer Lee Miller in Ellen Kuras’ biopic which is in UK cinemas in September. More on the project below. 

Sky has picked up the rights to distribute Ellen Kuras’ Lee, a biopic of war correspondent and photographer Lee Miller. Kate Winslet portrays Lee in the film, which had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2023. 

The stacked cast also includes Andy Samberg as Life Magazine photographer David E. Scherman, Alexander Skarsgård as English Surrealist painter, photographer, poet and biographer Roland Penrose, Marion Cotillard as Solange D’Ayen, the fashion director of French Vogue and close friend of Miller’s, Josh O’Connor as Tony, a young journalist and Andrea Riseborough as British Vogue Editor Audrey Withers.

Kuras is directing from a script by Liz Hannah, John Collee and Marion Hume. Winslet is also on board as a producer. In fact, Winslet personally paid the wages for the crew for two weeks during pre-production while funding was scarce. 

Sky are planning to release the film in cinemas first and you can head to your local screen to watch Lee from 13th September onwards. 

Critics who saw the film at Toronto last year praised Winslet’s gripping performance, but criticised the film’s generic biopic narrative. The film is currently sitting on 68% Rotten Tomatoes score. 

Here’s the official synopsis for Lee: LEE tells the story of Lee Miller (Winslet), American photographer. Determined to document the truth of the Nazi regime, and in spite of the odds stacked against female correspondents, Lee captured some of the most important images of World War II, for which she paid an enormous personal price.

Lee is in cinemas 13th September.
