Lee movie trailer – Kate Winslet stars in new WW2 film eight years in the making | Films | Entertainment

Having debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, Lee is finally set for release this September.

The upcoming biographical drama follows real-life Vogue fashion model turned World War II photojournalist Lee Miller.

The movie took eight years to make having initially been announced in 2015, with titular star Kate Winslet (who also produced the movie) at one point paying the entire cast and crew’s salaries for two weeks.

Meanwhile, during filming in 2022, the Oscar-winning star slipped and injured her back but decided to keep on filming despite being barely able to stand and requiring a hospital visit.

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

The film’s official synopsis reads: “Lee tells the story of Lee Miller, 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 the directorial debut from acclaimed cinematographer Ellen Kuras (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Betrayal).”

Lee hits UK and Irish cinemas on September 13, 2024.
