Lynne Ramsay - Rotten Tomatoes

Lynne Ramsay

Highest Rated:   84% Morvern Callar (2002)
Birthday:  
Birthplace:   Not Available
A graduate of the U.K.'s National Film and Television School, Scottish director Lynne Ramsay began her career winning two jury prizes at Cannes for her short films Small Deaths and Gasman. Often compared to other British directors like Ken Loach and Bill Douglas, Ramsay has a gritty, realistic visual style that demands attention. She takes inspiration from film scholar Robert Bresson and her love of photography to create films that rely on the power of the image to tell the story, often using still, static shots. She continued winning awards for her feature-length debut Ratcatcher, a coming-of-age tale about a boy in Glasgow during the '70s. Ramsay won a British Independent Film award for her sophomore effort Morvern Callar, which is based on a novel by Alan Warner about a girl who reinvents herself after her boyfriend's suicide. Her next proposed project would involve a collective film of erotic stories.
