Nancy Savoca Biography

  • Profession: Director, Screenwriter, Executive Producer
  • Born: Jan 1, 1960
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Of Sicilian and Argentinean heritage, American director Nancy Savoca spent the better part of the '80s raising funds for her debut film, [[Feature~V51147~True Love~truelove]] (1989). Drawing from the lives of her parents, Savoca fashioned a story of a multi-cultural marriage; the director's attention to detail and keen sense of ethnic ambience were key factors in her winning a United States Film Festival prize. Savoca's next film [[Feature~V14203~Dogfight~dogfight]] (1991) utilized the moment-by-moment approach first seen in [[Feature~V51147~True Love~truelove]] to chronicle the last day of "freedom" of a Vietnam-bound Marine. The director's most recent film was 1993's [[Feature~V131206~Household Saints~householdsaints]], wherein Italian-American bachelor Vincent D'Onofrio woos and wins the spinsterish girl (Tracey Ullmann) he has "won" in a pinochle game. Like the rest of Savoca's films, [[Feature~V131206~Household Saints~householdsaints]] was co-scripted by Savoca and her husband Richard Guay. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
