Renowned British director Stephen Frears is our special guest for an on-stage conversation about his career and his latest film TAMARA DREWE.
Graduating with a Law degree from Cambridge University in 1963, Frears went on to become an assistant director to iconic 60s British films such as MORGAN: A SUITABLE CASE FOR TREATMEANT and IF, before becoming a television director at the BBC. His directorial debut, GUMSHOE (1971), was an affectionate spoof of pulp detective novels of the past, starring Albert Finney as an aspiring private eye in Liverpool. But it wasn?t until the mid 80s when Frears became a major figure in the British and American film industry with the Academy Award nominated MY BEAUTIFUL LAUNDRETTE (1985), starring Daniel Day Lewis and Gordon Warnecke. His first Hollywood film, DANGEROUS LIAISONS, earned him a BAFTA nomination for Best Direction and paved the way for a successful career in both the UK and the US.
In recent years Stephen Frears has gone on to make a variety of classic films such as Nick Hornby?s HIGH FIDELITY, heart-racing crime drama DIRTY PRETTY THINGS, and the critically acclaimed box office sensation THE QUEEN.
