Oscar and Golden Globe-nominated screenwriter Robin Swicord was well known in Hollywood for her literary adaptations and for deftly translating multi-dimensional female characters and female-oriented stories successfully onto the movie screen. Her first notoriety came with "Little Women" (1994), and she was thereafter tapped to pen comedies and dramas that centered on female characters ("Matilda," 1996), non-traditional families ("The Perez Family," 1995) and sometimes both, as with the internationally acclaimed "Memoirs of Geisha" (2005). Her track record adapting bestsellers and literary classics alike made her an excellent choice for David Fincher's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (2008), which earned Swicord Oscar and Golden Globe nominations. After having served as producer on a number of the aforementioned projects, Swicord moved into feature film directing with "The Jane Austen Book Club" (2007), effectively advancing from her position as one of Hollywood's most respected screenwriters to one of its most powerful female executives and creative voices.
