An English actress of stage, screen and television, sister to Hayley Mills and daughter of Sir John Mills, Juliet first came to notice in films, actually after her sister Hayley started her career.

"Brimming with warmth, wit and wonder, “7000 Miles” is a film that the entire family can enjoy. It’s a love story, a story of friendship, a story of family, and most importantly, a story of discovering one’s true self — 7,000 miles away from where you started."

July 11, 2023


"Glazer leans into spotlighting the gorgeous scenery and also uses Malick to wonderful advantage in a heart-warmer about pursuing dreams no matter the obstacles that get thrown in one’s way."

August 11, 2023


"Oakland-based director and San Jose State University professor Amy Glazer returns to the festival with a moving drama about a strong and talented granddaughter (Alixzandra Dove, who also is a co-producer) and grandmother (the wonderful Wendie Malick, also a co-producer and a Glazer regular) who discover they have things in common and a legacy that binds them."


"There are narrative flourishes and then there are narrative flourishes. And one in the new film from director Amy Glazer (Seducing Charlie Barker, The Surrogate) is a doozy."
