A CIVIL ACTION
STEVEN ZAILLIAN is a master at bringing true stories to
the screen. He won an Oscar® for Best Adapted Screenplay for
"Schindler's List," which also brought him a Golden
Globe and a Writers Guild of America Award. He made his directorial
debut in 1992 with the highly acclaimed "Searching for Bobby
Fischer," which he also wrote.
"I'm always interested in characters who are tested in some
way, set against a story of importance," says Zaillian. "Jan
is certainly imperfect. He is someone primarily motivated by money,
by the things one accumulates in life, and that is how he defines
himself. But ultimately, he is willing to be destroyed by what
he thinks is right."
