From all outward appearances, Pippa Lee (Robin Wright Penn) leads a charmed existence. She is the devoted wife of an accomplished publisher (Alan Arkin) thirty years her senior, the proud mother of two grown children, and a trusted friend and confidant to all who cross her path. But as Pippa dutifully follows her husband to a new life in a staid Connecticut retirement community, her idyllic world and the persona she has built over the course of her marriage will be put to the ultimate test.

In truth, looks are deceiving, and this picture-perfect woman has seen more than her fair share of turmoil in her youth. Embarking on a bittersweet journey of self-discovery, accompanied by a new, strange and soulful acquaintance (Keanu Reeves), Pippa must now confront both her volatile past and the hidden resentment of her seemingly perfect life in order to find her true sense of self.

By turns wry, humorous, and moving, “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee” presents the complex portrait of the many lives behind a single name.

Rebecca Miller worked as a painter before becoming a writer and director. She is the author of the short story collection "Personal Velocity" (2001) and the novel "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee." For the film version of "Personal Velocity", she won several awards, including the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance. She has also written and directed the award-winning films "Angela" and "The Ballad of Jack and Rose".

"The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee" is her first novel and is being published in thirty countries. The film version will be released in Fall 2009, with a cast that includes Robin Wright Penn, Keanu Reeves, Julianne Moore, Alan Arkin, and Winona Ryder.

Rebecca Miller lives in Ireland and New York with her family.
