Michael Radford is an English film director and screenwriter.
Between 1976 and 1982 Radford worked as a documentary film maker making films mostly for the BBC. Radford came to international attention with “1984,” his adaptation of George Orwell’s novel. Radford’s next film, released in 1987, was “White Mischief,” for which Radford again wrote the screenplay, an adaptation of the novel by James Fox by the same title.
Radford is mostly widely known as the writer and director of the 1994 film “Il Postino,” which Radford adapted from the novel “Ardiente Paciencia” by Antonio Skármeta. The film won many international film awards including a BAFTA for Radford, who was also nominated for the Best Director and Adapted Screenplay Academy Awards. Radford’s films also include “Dancing at the Blue Iguana” and “The Merchant of Venice.” Radford directed his first play in 2000, a West End production of “The Seven Year Itch.”
