Arthur Miller: Writer
NAME OF FILM: ARTHUR MILLER: WRITER
DIRECTOR(S): Rebecca Miller
STARRING: Arthur Miller, Inge Morath, Tony Kushner, Mike Nichols
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: This highly personal and lovingly crafted film shines new light on the celebrated American playwright and U-M alumnus Arthur Miller from someone who knew him best—his daughter, Rebecca Miller (Maggie’s Plan, TCFF 2016). Assembled from over twenty years of archival footage and interviews, Miller delivers an engaging portrait of a complicated man who used his personal struggles to create timeless works of art, and yet found himself suddenly out of favor in the last years of his career. Weaving in interviews from famed writers including director Mike Nichols and playwright Tony Kushner, Millers serves up in-depth perspectives on the importance of Miller’s seminal works Death of a Salesman and The Crucible, while also exploring the vulnerabilities of the man she knew as her father—a man with plenty of regrets, including the institutionalization of his youngest son who was born with Down syndrome. This rich and heartfelt documentary will captivate you from start to finish, with a narrative that is just as compelling as Miller’s own work.
