Rebecca Augusta Miller, Lady Day-Lewis (born September 15, 1962) is an American filmmaker and novelist, known for her films Angela, Personal Velocity: Three Portraits, The Ballad of Jack and Rose, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, and Maggie's Plan, all of which she wrote and directed. Miller is the daughter of Arthur Miller, a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, and his third wife Inge Morath, a Magnum photographer. She was honored with the Maureen O'Hara Award at the Kerry Film Festival in 2009, the award is offered to women who have excelled in their chosen field in film. Early life Miller was born in Roxbury, Connecticut, to Arthur Miller, the dramatist, and Austrian-born Inge Morath, a photographer. Her younger brother, Daniel, was born in 1966. Her father was Jewish, whereas her mother was Protestant. For a time during childhood, Miller practiced Catholicism on her own accord. She has said that she stopped thinking of herself as a Christian "somewhere at the end of college". Miller remembered her childhood in Roxbury as being surrounded by artists. Sculptor Alexander Calder was a neighbor; so were choreographer Martha Clarke and members of the experimental dance troupe Pilobolus. Immersed in drawing, Miller was tutored by another neighbor, sculptor Philip Grausman.Miller attended Choate Rosemary Hall. In 1980, she entered Yale University to study painting and literature. Naomi Wolf, the feminist author, was her roommate. Miller created wooden panel triptychs she described as hybrids of pictographic forms inspired, for example, by Paul Klee and a 15th-century altarpiece. Upon graduation in 1985, Miller went abroad on a fellowship, to Munich, Germany. In 1987, Miller took up residence in New York City, and she showed painting and sculpture at Leo Castelli Gallery, Victoria Munroe Gallery, and in Connecticut. Miller also studied film at The New School. Mentored by then 92-year-old professor Arnold S. Eagle, a photographer and cinematographer, Miller began making non-verbal films, which she exhibited along with her artwork.In 1988, Miller was cast in the role of Anya in the Peter Brook's adaptation of Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, her first stage role. She originated the part of Lili in The American Plan. Throughout, Miller gravitated toward her role as an independent filmmaker/director. Miller began her acting career with directors Alan Pakula, Paul Mazursky, and Mike Nichols. She played the female lead in NBC's television movie The Murder of Mary Phagan, and supporting roles in feature films, including Regarding Henry (1991) and Consenting Adults (1992). In 1991, Miller wrote and directed a short film Florence, starring actress Marcia Gay Harden, about a precociously empathetic woman who acquires the symptoms from others; eventually "catching" a neighbor's amnesia, she forgets her own identity. Florence caught the attention of Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati, and Miller was invited to direct a revival of Arthur Miller's After the Fall. She also directed Nicole Burdette's play The Bluebird Special Came Through Here. Career 1990s Miller is a novelist, director, independent filmmaker, and advocate of women in the film industry. She was featured in the 2003 IFC Films documentary In The Company of Women, directed by Lesli Klainberg and Gini Reticker. In 2009, Miller was honored with the Maureen O'Hara Award in recognition of achievements in film.Miller wrote and directed her first film, Angela, in 1995. It is the story of 10-year-old Angela's attempt to purge her soul of sin in order to cure her mentally ill mother. The film premiered at Philadelphia Festival of World Cinema, and screened at Sundance Film Festival. For Angela, Miller received the Independent Feature Project (IFP) Gotham Awards, the Independent Film Project's Open Palm Award, and the Sundance Film Festival Filmmaker Trophy from her peers. The film cinematographer Ellen Kuras was also honored at Sundance and the Brussels International Festival of Fantasy Film. 2000s Miller's collection of prose portraits of women, Personal Velocity, was awarded The Washington Post Best Book of 2001. Personal Velocity was adapted by Miller for her 2002 award-winning feature film by the same name. She adapted three short stories into a screenplay of three different, although thematically unified short films, which Miller then directed. Each film explores personal transformation in response to life-changing circumstances. Miller credits the poet Honor Moore for help to "bridge the gap between being a writer of scripts and fiction." Personal Velocity: Three Portraits screened at Tribeca Film Festival, the High Falls Film Festival, and the film was successfully released through United Artists. The film earned critical praise from The New York Times as "the work of a talented and highly visual writer." For Personal Velocity, Miller received the Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize and the Independent Spirit John Cassavetes Award in 2002, and the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Special Recognition for Excellence in Filmmaking in 2003. Cinematographer Ellen Kuras received the Excellence in Cinematography Award at Sundance.

Miller wrote the screenplay for the 2005 film adaptation of David Auburn's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Proof. The film was directed by John Madden, and stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Anthony Hopkins. Also in 2005, Miller directed her film, The Ballad of Jack and Rose, which stars Daniel Day-Lewis, Camilla Belle and Catherine Keener.

A nuanced exploration of a 50-year-old woman's adjustment reaction to moving into a retirement community with her 80-year-old husband, the story flows back and forth between the main character Pippa's memories of her freewheeling New York City youth in the 1970s and her present life. Miller directed a star-studded cast which includes Robin Wright, Alan Arkin, Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder and Julianne Moore.
