What is the plot of Lee?

According to the film’s official plot synopsis, Lee follows “the story of photographer Elizabeth ‘Lee’ Miller, a fashion model who became an acclaimed war correspondent for Vogue magazine during World War II.”

It looks like it will take a deep dive into the people Lee meets on her travels, the impact of war on them and her own psyche, zoning in on her own personal trauma. Lee will take us through her career from around 1938 as her career shifts from modelling to war photography. Miller brought an important female perspective to war reporting at the time, and witnessed the Nazi concentration camps of Buchenwald and Dachau, as well as the liberation of Paris and was even photographed in Hitler’s bath tub. Quite an icon.

Director Ellen Kuras spoke to Vanity Fair about how she was drawn to Miller’s journey from being in front of the camera, to behind it in a war zone.

“For someone who was objectified, to take the step around to the other side of the camera, I was really intrigued by: What is she seeing, what is she looking at, what is her point of view?” she said. “It was with that same kind of approach that I took to this film.”
