THE RUM DIARY

BRUCE ROBINSON (Writer/Director) was nominated for an Academy Award ® as well as a Golden Globe for his screenplay The Killing Fields. The powerful story of the New York Times journalist, Sidney Schanberg, and his Cambodian translator Dith Pran. That script also won a WGA Award and a BAFTA Award, but cult success was to come a couple of years later when he wrote and directed Withnail and I, the brilliant comedy of bad manners in late 1960s London which is now considered the gold standard of its genre. Robinson also directed and wrote the subversive satire How to Get Ahead in Advertising. His other screenplay credits include In Dreams, starring Annette Bening, Robert Downey Jr. and Aidan Quinn; and Fat Man and Little Boy, starring Paul Newman.

Born in London, Robinson got his start in acting after training at London's Central School of Speech and Drama. He worked extensively in theatre, making appearances in "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” at the Manhattan Theatre Club, "Valenti,” and "Wonderful Town” at the Equity Library Theatre in New York, and "The Tenor's Suite” at the Theatre Centre in Philadelphia.

He has also appeared in a dozen films including Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet, Ken Russell's The Music Lovers, and Francois Truffaut's The Story of Adele H.

Other writing credits include the stage play "Byrd's Boy,” produced at the Primary Stages Theatre, New York and the novel, "The Pacukliar Memories of Thomas Penman.” He is also a contributor to The New Statesman and Society.
