Kate Winslet to lead Lee Miller biopic


Kate Winslet is all set to star in an yet-to-be-titled biopic about Lee Miller, the renowned American photographer and correspondent who was a leading figure in chronicling World War II for Vogue magazine.

The 41-year-old actor will play the model-artiste, who brought the world’s attention to the atrocities committed in the Nazi concentration camps through her photographs, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film will narrate the life story of Miller, as told by her son, Antony Penrose, in the only authorised biography, “The Lives of Lee Miller”.

Winslet has earlier worked in another film set against the backdrop of WWII, “Reader” (2008) for which she received the Oscar for Best Actress.
