With a background as an award-winning theatre director, John Crowley received critical acclaim and his first awards (including the Douglas Hickox Best Debut Director at the BIFAs) with his first feature Intermission, which starred Colin Farrell and Cillian Murphy. He followed this with Boy A starring Andrew Garfield and Peter Mullan, and Is Anybody There? starring Michael Caine. Brooklyn, adapted by Nick Hornby from Colm Toibin’s novel and starring Saoirse Ronan won the Best British Film BAFTA along with three Academy Award nominations. John’s most recent film was The Goldfinch, adapted from the Donna Tartt novel by Peter Straughan, and starring Ansel Elgort, Nicole Kidman, Jeffrey Wright and Sarah Paulson.
