- London · Sienna Miller · Pennsylvania

LON­DON (Reuters) — Por­tray­ing a sin­gle mother whose teenage daugh­ter sud­denly dis­ap­pears in “Amer­i­can Woman” was a “gru­el­ing” role for Si­enna Miller that forced the Bri­tishAmer­i­can ac­tress to imag­ine her worst night­mare.

Miller plays De­bra, a 32-year old su­per­mar­ket cashier whose daugh­ter Brid­get, a mother her­self, fails to re­turn home af­ter a night out.

Set in ru­ral Penn­syl­va­nia, the har­row­ing drama fol­lows De­bra over the course of 11 years as she looks af­ter Brid­get’s tod­dler son and faces per­sonal hard­ships.

“It was gru­el­ing ... The idea of ex­plor­ing that, the unimag­in­able, my worst night­mare, felt in­ter­est­ing and that be­ing said when I agreed to do the film I was pray­ing I wouldn’t have to be­cause I started to dread what that would be and it was im­pos­si­bly hard,” Miller told

Reuters in an in­ter­view.
