Mike Leigh OBE is an English writer and director of film and theatre. He studied theatre at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and further at the Camberwell School of Art and the Central School of Art and Design. He began as a theatre director and playwright in the mid-1960s. In the 1970s and 1980s his career moved between theatre work and making films for BBC Television, many of which were characterised by a gritty kitchen sink realism style. His well-known films include the comedy-dramas Life is Sweet and Career Girls, the Gilbert and Sullivan biographical film Topsy-Turvy, and the bleak working-class drama All or Nothing. His most notable works are the black comedy-drama Naked, for which he won the Best Director Award at Cannes, the Oscar-nominated, BAFTA and Palme dOr-winning drama Secrets & Lies and the Golden Lion winning working-class drama Vera Drake. Some of his notable stage plays include Smelling A Rat, Its A Great Big Shame, Greek Tragedy, Goose-Pimples, Ecstasy, and Abigails Party.
