Gary Winick


Born - 31 March 1961, New York City, USA
Died - 27 February 2011

Dark, swarthy American film-maker, who directed a dozen movies from indie to mainstream and produced dozens more. His directing career got off to an inauspicious star with the horror movie Curfew (1989) but, after Sweet Nothing (1995) and The Tic Code (1999), he achieved his greatest critical success with the independent feature Tadpole (2002), about a teenager who falls in love with his stepmother. While continuing as a producer (Pieces of April (2003), Lonesome Jim (2005)), he moved into glossier fare as a director: 13 Going on 30 (2004), Charlotte's Web (2006), Bride Wars (2009) and Letters to Juliet (2010), his last. He died from brain cancer, having been diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2009.
