Director's Biography

Discovered in the 1990s with his first film, Little Odessa (1994), which he directed at the age of twenty-five, James Gray immediately established himself as one of the most gifted filmmakers of his generation. Author of several exceptional films, among them The Yards (2000), We Own the Night (2007) and Two Lovers (2008), James Gray has carved out a place for himself on the border between independent and studio cinema. An heir to the New Hollywood movement and an erudite cinephile, Gray is the author of a naturalistic and intimate body of work, marked by filial and amorous relationships, outsider characters and existential choices.
