Amanda Milius | Biography

Daughter of actress Celia Kaye and director/screenwriter John Milius

Amanda Milius is an American film director prominently known for her 2020 film 'The Plot Against the President.'

Who is Amanda Milius?

Amanda Milius is a film director born in Los Angeles, California.

She is the daughter of actress Celia Kaye and director/screenwriter John Milius. Milius is also the stepdaughter of Elan Oberon. 

Milius spent most of her twenties in New York, where she studied philosophy and film at the New School University. She completed her thesis film at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Her films at USC focused on the psychology of four powerful female main characters amid tough terrain and surroundings, namely Duel, Silver Beach, Disconnect, and Maneater.

After being overwhelmed with Westerns, historical sagas, and other violent films as a child, Amanda is crafting her style, inspired by these elements but with her perspective on morality and honor.

In 2015, she directed the short film The Lotus Gun. The movie follows Nora and her friend/lover, Daphine, who fight for their lives in a post-government world devoid of laws and weapons.

Daphine's curiosity leads her to a violent, misogynistic, psychedelic drug cult when a stranger arrives on their property. 

Then, in 2020, she directed the documentary The Plot Against the President

Moreover, John has also been nominated for an 'Academy Award' for screenwriting Apocalypse Now (1979). Later, from 2005 to 2007, he co-created the 'Primetime Emmy Award'-winning television series Rome.

On 6 February 2022, Milius shared a picture with her father on Instagram with the caption, "The reason I don't talk about my personal life is bc I only date extremely well known stars of the stage and screen and I can't have you all out there gossiping."

Milius credits her father for introducing her to Westerns and Samurai films at a young age, claiming that he frequently played soundtrack music in the car.

She cites her father's films, including DillingerConan the Barbarian, and Big Wednesday, have influenced her. "In some ways I got more parenting out of his films than I did from him. Which results in a weird situation where you're learning your morality from these movies," Milius said to Indie Wire in 2016.
