Personal Quote:

I get frustrated about it because they say, "How can a man talk about women? I say, "Steven Spielberg didn't need to be an alien to talk about ET. You don't need to be a dog to direct Lassie. It seems to be a denial of the process of imagination, which is a posh word for "guesswork" [on 'The Hours'] See more »

Trivia:

He was awarded the Laurence Olivier Theatre Award in 1994 (1993 season) for Best Director of a Play for Machinal at the Royal National Theatre. See more »
