Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A gifted talent who was directing TV's "Coronation Street" (1972) by his early twenties and gained international recognition for his work on the much-praised, 11-part "Brideshead Revisited" (1981), Sturridge has made four assured forays into feature films, including the lyrically sculpted black-and-white segment, "La Forza del Destino" from "Aria" (1986). With a particular affinity for handsomely executed period films and rich literary adaptations, he filmed another Evelyn Waugh novel, "A Handful of Dust" (1988) and the lushly beautiful and brilliantly acted film version of E. M. Forster's first novel, "Where Angels Fear to Tread" (1992).
