"In this stylishly shot program, Penrose pieces together his mother’s life from her own writings (read dramatically), commentary by art historians, and of course, the photographs. Miller emerges as a daring artist willing to buck the conventions and limits placed on women in the early 20th century … This would be a fine addition to art history and women’s studies collections."
"You may not have heard of Lee Miller, but this BBC documentary about her uncovers a fascinating life. She went from a supermodel, appearing on the cover of American Vogue, to a photographer and war reporter covering the liberation of Europe at the end of World War II before retreating from public life after the trauma she witnessed. War photographer Lynsey Addario and supermodel Karen Elson also appear to testify to her resilience and ground-breaking spirit."
