Personal Quote:

When I was at university, the film club always showed In the Realm of the Senses (In the Realm of the Senses (1976)) at the start of a new year to get people to join. It was full of explicit sex, yet you can buy it in HMV now. See more »

Trivia:

Was the original director chosen for The Cider House Rules (1999), Goal! The Dream Begins (2005), and Freedomland (2006) and did extensive work before leaving each of those projects. See more »
