    (February 20, 1943- )
    Born near Manchester, England
    Directed 'Bleak Moments (1971),' 'Hard Labour (1973),' 'Nuts in May (1976),' 'Abigail's Party (1977),' 'Meantime (1984),' 'Four Days in July (1985),' 'High Hopes (1988),' 'Life is Sweet (1990),' 'Naked (1993),' 'Secrets & Lies (1996),' 'Career Girls (1997),' 'Topsy-Turvy (1999)' and 'All or Nothing (2002)'
    Most of his movies feature unhappy poor people leading unpleasant lives.
    He angered some fans of his grittier movies by making 'Topsy-Turvy,' a fancy period musical about Gilbert and Sullivan.
    He made a movie called 'The Short and Curlies,' which is British slang for pubic hair.
    He can be a blowhard when talking about his work.
    His movies explore social issues in realistic ways, without being preachy.
    They are usually sad, yet funny.
    He has his actors improvise his entire movies, which gives them a unique feel.
    His films, especially 'Secrets & Lies' and 'Topsy-Turvy,' have been critically acclaimed.
    He has been compared to Dickens, Mozart and Ingmar Bergman.
    When he said he wanted to go into show business, his father called him 'a stage-struck girlie.'
    He remains close friends with his ex-wife.
    About people who take his movies too seriously, he says: 'There's something wrong with the way they are.'
