Guy Richie

director

It was watching Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid as a child that made Guy Ritchie realise that he wanted to make films. Ritchie is dyslexic and struggled at school; he dropped out at the age of 15 and worked as a labourer before acquiring a job as a runner. He first made his name in 1998 with his low budget gangster film Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, which went on to earn a BAFTA nomination for Outstanding British Film of the Year. More recently Ritchie has directed the Sherlock Holmes films, the first of which became his most commercially successful film, and this year he will direct The Man from UNCLE, based on the television series of the same name.
