Following its premiere at the New York Film Festival last fall, “Arthur Miller: Writer” is headed to HBO. The documentary was directed by Rebecca Miller — who, not coincidentally, happens to be Arthur Miller’s daughter — and has earned favorable reviews for its intimate, all-in-the-family look at its subject. Watch an exclusive trailer below.
“Art is long, life short,” Miller says. “I forgot the Latin.”
Here’s the synopsis: “‘Arthur Miller: Writer’ is an intimate portrait of one of the greatest American playwrights of the 20th century. The documentary is told from the unique perspective of an award-winning filmmaker: his daughter, Rebecca Miller. The film includes material never before seen by the public, including in-depth interviews and home movie-style footage, providing insights into Miller that are quite different from the ones the public has previously seen. Rebecca Miller opens the door to the man behind the icon, delves into the roots of his life as an artist, and explores his character — both its strengths and its weaknesses.”
Miller, who most recently directed “Maggie’s Plan,” previously helmed “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee,” “The Ballad of Jack and Rose,” “Personal Velocity,” and “Angela.” “Arthur Miller: Writer” premieres on HBO on Monday, March 19.
