MORE INFORMATION

About Jude Law

In a highly acclaimed career spanning three decades working in film and television across every genre, London-born actor Jude Law has brought to life some of film’s most memorable characters marked by continuous experimentation and reinvention. After making his American film debut in the futuristic GATTACA as the genetically engineered Jerome Morrow, Law soon gained international fame for his portrayal of the charming Dickie Greenleaf in Anthony Minghella’s adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY. The film garnered him his first Academy Award and Golden Globe Best Supporting Actor nominations; he also won a BAFTA Award for the role. He worked again with Minghella in COLD MOUNTAIN, for which he was also nominated for Golden Globe and Academy Awards, this time as Best Actor.

Throughout his career, Law has surrounded himself with collaborators who share his passion for storytelling and creating complex and unforgettable characters, including Sam Mendes (ROAD TO PERDITION), David Cronenberg (EXISTENZ), Steven Spielberg (A.I. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE), Martin Scorsese (HUGO), Mike Nichols (CLOSER), Nancy Meyers (THE HOLIDAY), Wes Anderson (THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL), Steven Soderbergh (SIDE EFFECTS, CONTAGION) and Paolo Sorrentino (THE YOUNG POPE, THE NEW POPE). Teaming with director Sean Durkin and co-star Carrie Coon in his latest work, the 1980s-set drama THE NEST, Law stars as Rory, an ambitious entrepreneur who relocates his American wife and their children to England, where the couple’s marriage threatens to unravel.
