Portraying a single mother whose teenage daughter suddenly disappears in "American Woman" was a "gruelling" role for Sienna Miller that forced the British-American actress to envisage 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 gruelling ... 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.
"Obviously not nearly as hard as the actual experience but I spent a lot of time with people who had gone through that and it was crushing." Miller, 37, who has a young daughter, is known for supporting roles in dramas "American Sniper" and "Foxcatcher" but she said "American Woman" was harder than her past work.
Critics have praised her performance as Debra, who transforms from brusque mistress to a more settled grandmother.
The film, released in Britain on Friday (October 11), also stars "Mad Men" actress Christina Hendricks as Debra's sister Katherine and "Breaking Bad" actor Aaron Paul as love interest Chris.
Those who appear in the clip include Sarah Paulson, Julianne Moore, Justin Theroux, Stanley Tucci, Aaron Paul, Kristen Bell, Mark Duplass, Bryce Dallas Howard, Debra Messing, Ilana Glazer, Kesha, Bethany Joy Lenz, Piper Perabo and others.
