Trailer Watch: Rebecca Miller Explores Her Father’s Life and Work in “Arthur Miller: Writer”

Arthur Miller: Writer”: Telluride

An award-winning filmmaker offers a nuanced portrait of one of the most celebrated playwrights of all-time — who also happens to be her father — in “Arthur Miller: Writer.” Directed by Rebecca Miller (“The Ballad of Jack and Rose”), the doc explores the tension between the “Death of a Salesman” scribe’s public persona and the father Miller knew at home. “My father was a national icon decades before I was born,” she says in a new trailer for the HBO film. “Early on I recognized that his public persona was so different than the man I knew.”

“Arthur Miller: Writer” sees the daughter and father having intimate, candid conversations about self-doubt and failures. “I enjoyed being a father. I enjoyed also escaping being a father,” the “All My Sons” playwright admits to his daughter.

Arthur Miller died in 2005.
