Über diesen Titel


A biography of award-winning film star Daniel Day-Lewis offers an intimate look at a private celebrity that explores his relationship with his famous father, strict boarding school education, elusive romantic attachments, and life lived among the rich and famous.

From Booklist:

Read quickly, Jenkins' prose numbs because it is so rich with detail on so many interesting and accomplished people in the life of Daniel Day-Lewis. A minibiography of Cecil Day-Lewis, Daniel's father, once England's Poet Laureate and a renowned crime writer, fires the beginning, and an assortment of anecdotes about other members of Daniel's circle stoke it--his mother, Jill Balcon, an actress and the daughter of Sir Michael Balcon, head of Ealing Film Studios; Balcon himself; Tamasin, Daniel's talented sister; Kingsley Amis, in whose home Cecil died; Sarah Campbell, a Bedales schoolmate and Daniel's first significant lover; and on. Once Jenkins accounts for a biography on his young subject, the "wolfishly good-looking Englishman," an accounting that concludes dramatically with Daniel's decision to pursue acting rather than cabinetmaking, every reader should be primed to accept everything the writer wants to attribute to the credentialed actor. Jenkins quotes Day-Lewis on the best screenplays he has read: "It's like poetry: if someone knows how to use very few words, it's far more effective than someone who uses a great many more to say less." My Beautiful Laundrette, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father, The Age of Innocence, D. Day-Lewis' work speaks for him, and this biography is very respectful.
