Hallström cut his teeth making music videos in Sweden, particularly for ABBA, which pioneered the era of music videos.
After the international success of My Life as a Dog, which won him Best Director Oscar and also the award for best screenplay based on material from another medium, he moved to Hollywood, where he has directed a string of award-winning films. They include What's Eating Gilbert Grape, for which Leonardo diCaprio was nominated as Best Supporting Actor; The Cider House Rules, with Oscars for Michael Caine and writer John Irving and five nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director and Chocolat, with six nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actress (Juliette Binoche) and Best Supporting Actress (Judi Dench). He also directed Judi Dench and Kevin Spacy in The Shipping News, Robert Redford in An Unfinished Life and Heath Leger in Casanova.
His latest film, The Hoax, about former Ibiza-resident Clifford Irving, is due to be released next month.
