THE WAY BACK

JIM STURGESS (Janusz). Jim Sturgess has now completed shooting "Upside Down” co- starring with Kirsten Dunst. Adam (Sturgess) is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he met once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach… a girl named Eve.

Sturgess recently starred in Philip Ridley's critically acclaimed "Heartless" opposite Timothy Spall and Clémence Poésy. The story centers on a young man (Sturgess) who is tricked into a deal with a demon and then fights to save his soul. "Heartless" was released by Lionsgate in the UK in May 2010.

In Zack Snyder's animated film "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole," Sturgess lends his voice opposite Geoffrey Rush, Rachael Taylor and David Wenhem. Based on the children's book series by Kathryn Lasky, the film follows a young barn owl and his friends as they join forces with the mythical Guardians of Ga'Hoole, owl protectors, to save the owl kingdom from rogue elements. The film was released by Warner Bros. on September 24, 2010.

Sturgess was seen in Kari Skogland's independent film, "Fifty Dead Man Walking" starring opposite Sir Ben Kingsley. The film is based on Martin McGartland's shocking real life story of a young man (Sturgess) from west Belfast in the late 1980's who is recruited by the British Police to spy on the IRA. He works his way up the ranks as a volunteer for the IRA while feeding information to the British police; until one day he is exposed, captured and tortured. The film premiered at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival and Sturgess was nominated for the 2009 Vancouver Film Critics Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Canadian Film. Additionally the film won the 2009 Vancouver Film Critics Award for the Best British Columbia Film and Best Feature Film at the Vancouver Film Festival.

In 2008, Sturgess starred in Robert Luketic's box office hit "21," opposite Kate Bosworth and Kevin Spacey. "21" is loosely inspired by five MIT students who were trained to become experts in card counting and subsequently took Vegas casinos for millions in winnings. "21" was released by Sony Pictures and was #1 at the US box office for its first two weekends of release. Internationally, "21" opened at #1 in the UK, Russia, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Iceland, Greece, grossing over $150 million worldwide.

Sturgess also starred in Julie Taymor's critically acclaimed film, "Across the Universe" opposite Evan Rachel Wood. Utilizing classic Beatles songs, the story centers on an American girl (Wood) and her relationship with a British boy (Sturgess) set against the backdrop of the social upheaval of the 1960s. "Across the Universe" was released by Revolution Studios and Sony Pictures and was nominated for a 2008 Golden Globe for "Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy" and the soundtrack was nominated for a 2008 Grammy for "Best Compilation Soundtrack Album for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media."

Sturgess was recently nominated as the "Best Newcomer" by the Empire Film Awards (2009). Sturgess's other film credits include "Crossing Over" and "The Other Boleyn Girl."
