'The Private Life of a Modern Woman'

The drama from director James Toback premieres at the Venice Film Festival on Saturday.

The Private Life of a Modern Woman, the new drama from writer-director James Toback, is simultaneously one of the most anticipated, and secretive, films of 2017.

The feature, which premieres at the Venice Film Festival on Saturday, stars Sienna Miller as the modern woman of the title, a successful actress struggling to keep up with public appearance amid personal doubt and depression. Alec Baldwin, Charles Grodin and Colleen Camp co-star. But few details are known about the project, which Toback shot in secrecy.

From the first sneak preview clip of the film (see below), it looks like Toback has borrowed techniques from his acclaimed documentaries Tyson and Seduced and Abandoned to get an intimate performance from Miller.

In the clip, Miller, in character, speaks to an unseen interviewer about depression and the struggles of living under constant scrutiny.

CAA is handling world sales on The Private Life of a Modern Woman.
