Screenwriter Simon Beaufoy was the author of two of the most winning, crowd-pleasing feature films in movie history - the Oscar-nominated "Full Monty" (1997) and "Slumdog Millionaire," which won the hearts of moviegoers in 2008. Both projects were distinguished by the considerable warmth and excitement of their underdog stories, as well as a latent streak of social commentary about the ability of the disenfranchised to rise above their situation, despite the worst intentions of the establishment. In addition to these hits, Beaufoy worked extensively in independent British cinema on films like "Among Giants" (1998) and "Darkest Light" (1999). The success of "Monty" and especially "Slumdog" assured Beaufoy's status as one of the international scene's most promising screenwriters.
