Stephen Daldry
The Reader

Stephen Daldry began his career in theater as a director, including serving several years as artistic director of the Royal Court Theatre. In 2000, he hit the big screen with his wildly celebrated debut of Billy Elliot, the fictional story of a young boy who grows up in a blue-collar town and dreams of being a dancer.

The Reader tells the story of a German lawyer who realizes later in adulthood that the woman with whom he had an affair as a teenager may be concealing a secret.

This is his first nomination.
