An acclaimed author of fiction, Neil Jordan entered films in 1981 as script consultant on John Boorman's King Arthur tale Excalibur. He made a documentary on the making of Boorman's film, and after scripting Traveler, wrote and directed his first film, the stylish drama Angel (aka Danny Boy) in 1982. Jordan attracted international attention with his horror tale The Company Of Wolves (1985) and his crime drama Mona Lisa (1986). He then came to the U.S., where he helmed two unimpressive comedies, High Spirits (1988) and We're No Angels (1989). Back in Ireland, Jordan strengthened his reputation with The Miracle (1991), a touching drama about Irish teens, and then scored a major hit with his striking drama of the IRA, The Crying Game (1992).In 1994, he returned to horror and Hollywood with his big-budget Anne Rice adaptation Interview with the Vampire (1994), but afterward, went back again to Ireland to make the highly acclaimed Michael Collins (1996), starring Liam Neeson, and The Butcher Boy, which earned Jordan a Silver Bear from the 1997 Berlin Film Festival.
