Jim Sheridan Biography

  • Profession: Director, Screenwriter, Producer, Executive Producer
  • Born: Feb 6, 1949
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Irish filmmaker Jim Sheridan emulated his stage-director father by working in Dublin-based children's theater, then with the "alternate theater" Project Art Centre, an organization Sheridan co-founded. He left the Centre over a dispute concerning a gay-themed production, then moved to New York, where he briefly enrolled in the N.Y.U. film school and served as artistic director of the Irish Arts Center. With his movie directorial debut, the Oscar-nominated [[Feature~V34071~My Left Foot~myleftfoot]] (1989), Sheridan inaugurated a harmonious working relationship with Irish actor Daniel Day-Lewis, which has yielded such excellent projects as [[Feature~V123216~In the Name of the Father~inthenameofthefather]] (1993). Sheridan would continue to take on selective projects in the years to come, directing rapper 50 Cent in the urban drama Get Rich or Die Tryin', Oscar winner Natalie Portman in the post-war drama Brothers, and Bond-franchise star Daniel Craig in the supernatural thriller Dream House. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
